Registration is now open for the “Careers in History Symposium,” presented by the National Council on Public History, the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) Public History Program, and the IUPUI History Graduate Student Association. Registration is $15.
Explore a sampling of careers open to those who want to be historians or use historical training directly in their jobs. The focus will be public or applied history, but the discussions will include more specific areas, such as museum studies, historic preservation, archives, policy, civic engagement, and business.
Undergraduate (and graduate) students should leave inspired and with information about graduate school, clear ideas about job possibilities that build off of their interests in history, as well as lists of resources and personal contacts they can call upon in considering their future. Besides specific history/public history career information, we will offer fresh perspectives on the many ways in which professional historians, curators, preservationists, cultural resource managers, archivists, educators, government agencies, and small businesses work together. There will also be two optional behind-the-scenes tours offered.
