GHSA is very pleased to host a panel on career opportunities in the Digital Humanities.

This panel will feature five speakers who work in a digital humanities field at UVA or in Charlottesville. Our speakers will present their current digital humanities projects, talk about what got them interested in this work, and their career paths. This is an exciting opportunity for graduate students to find out more about the many digital humanities career fields that exist!
