Historical Studies Cafe

A careers seminar for HDR students in Historical Studies.

This is your chance to talk to academics and professionals about their experiences going from study to work, and about the ‘inside story’ of their careers. The café has an informal atmosphere. Speakers introduce their experiences as history graduates in the workplace, and then you get the chance to ask your questions over coffee and cake. This semester, the café features historians from Monash University.

Time and location: 2 pm – 3 pm, Menzies Building, 20 Chancellors Walk, N602 Meeting Room, Clayton. The café will be held four times during semester, at 2 pm on Fridays.

Program: Semester 1, 2016
