In and Beyond the Digital: Career Pathways for Humanists

Recorded Wednesday, May 13, 2020

In this moment of global crisis, medievalists and all those who work in the humanities face a period of increased uncertainty about the environments in which they work and operate. The National Endowment for the Humanities is a federal agency dedicated to supporting humanistic endeavors across the nation. In this talk, Hannah Alpert-Abrams from the Office of Digital Humanities speaks about career pathways for humanists in and beyond the digital, and about the role of the humanities in uncertain times. Dr. Alpert-Abrams’ presentation is followed by a discussion period, moderated by the MAA’s Digital Humanities and Multimedia Committee. Although members of the MAA’s Graduate Student Association are the primary audience for the presentation, all were welcome.

The Mother of All Pandemics: The State of Black Death Research in the Era of COVID-19
Recorded Friday 15 May 2020

This panel brings together leading researchers on the Second Plague Pandemic. We will discuss why work in genetics has transformed the kinds of questions that historians and researchers in allied fields (bioarchaeology, genetics, climate history, literary studies, and art history) can now ask about this pandemic. For many of these questions, we're still dealing only with hypotheses and fragmentary evidence. But the very fact that researchers from across these many disciplines now recognize the urgency of talking together signals that the field has made an important shift.
