Though professional services and conversations vary from campus to campus, Humanists@Work seeks to better understand how the needs and interests of PhDs are currently being met (or not) as professionalization for humanities PhDs undergoes significant and—we hope—sustained transformation. This session presents data from a survey administered to humanities PhDs at four UC campuses, as well as snapshots of available resources at each campus, in order to analyze the professionalization landscape for humanities PhDs, identify gaps in existing resources, and propose opportunities for improvement. The second part of this session invites participants to collaborate on what the ideal campus might look like with regard to professionalization and to begin work on creating resource maps that reflect the variety of careers open to humanities PhDs.
