Location: Newberry Library
This workshop aims to support medievalists thinking creatively about careers outside academia by encouraging thoughtful reflection about medieval studies skills and their wide-ranging utility. We will explore the range of archival skills scholars in medieval studies develop and consider their application in places outside of the institutionalized medieval archive. Bringing together the Newberry Library’s robust collections of medieval and Native American materials, participants will think through the very different ethical stakes of each of these archives and consider how the skills honed by medieval studies research and training can be useful in unexpected places like tribal, state, or national governments.
