At the Future Humanities conference in Montreal last week, career consultant Anne Krook led a well-received workshop for graduate students interested in careers outside the academy. She also gave the plenary lecture, entitled “From Being to Doing: Mobilizing the Humanities,” the text of which she has kindly agreed to share here.
The author of “Now What Do I Say?”: Practical Workplace Advice for Younger Women, available in paperback and as an ebook, Anne consults, speaks, and writes on this and other workplace topics, including the transition from academe to the non-academic workplace. She also serves on the board of Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, whose mission is to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, transexuals, and those with HIV.
