The Art of Translation: Explaining Skills for Careers Beyond Academia

Image of a flyer for Dec. 4 Connected Academics event at ASU.

Presented by Connected Academics with co-sponsorship from ASU's Department of English and School of International Letters and Cultures, this event will combine readings from Rogers (2020), Putting the Humanities PhD to Work (pp. 104-107, available from ASU Library), video clips of interviews from PhD graduates who have found success beyond academia, and a Q&A session.

“The most important and challenging element can be considered a work of translation— showing a prospective employer exactly how your experience within academia can be an asset within a very different context” (Rogers, 2020, p. 105).

A link to attend will be provided upon registration.
