Subject: Job Seekers' Activities at ACH/ALLC 2001
To members of the Humanities Computing Community:
As part of an effort to make the annual ACH/ALLC meeting an especially
useful event for graduate students, the Association for Computers and the
Humanities is this year initiating a series of structured activities for
job seekers in humanities computing (both academic and industry positions).
We will be conducting these at the annual conference, this year at NYU June
13-17 (see the web page at http://www.nyu.edu/its/humanities/ach_allc2001).
While the conference is in session, we plan to facilitate one-to-one
mentoring meetings with prospective job seekers, probably over lunch.
Mentors will be members the ACH's ad hoc committee on job seeking
activities, all of whom have had first-hand experience with the "market" in
this field: Julia Flanders, Matthew Kirschenbaum, Wendell Piez, and
Geoffrey Rockwell. (Lorna Hughes also serves as a committee member, but
she'll be busy running the conference this year . . . ) In addition, we're
putting together a poster display explicating (or deconstructing) a typical
humanities computing job ad, and a binder listing currently available
positions in the field.
Please reply to Wendell Piez <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you'd like to
chat with a mentor during the conference, and mention whether you're
interested in academic or industry work (or both). We'd also be happy to
hear from anyone interested in serving as a mentor themselves, or with
suggestions for the kind of activities this committee might undertake in
the future. Finally, please pass the word about this opportunity to any
students or associates who might be interested, encouraging them to take part.
