FGSS Careers Beyond the Professoriate
December 2 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Please join us for a panel discussion and workshop on pursuing careers beyond the professoriate in FGSS and the humanities. This event will feature a conversation with Liz M. Alexander, Stephen Kim, Lynne Stahl, and Cameron Scott about their journeys to their current careers, followed by a short workshop on identifying transferrable skills with Denise DiRienzo, the Experiential Program Director in the Graduate School’s Careers Beyond Academia program.
Liz Murice Alexander is a doctoral candidate in Literatures in English, completing a dissertation titled Dirty Computers: Erotic Data Poetics. They serve as Digital Communications Grad Intern at the Cornell LGBT Resource Center, a season two producer with Change Agents the Podcast, and founder at SixtyFifthSt Media.
Stephen Kim completed his PhD in English at Cornell in 2020 with minor fields in FGSS and American Studies. During his time as a graduate student, he worked for Cornell’s Intergroup Dialogue Project (IDP). After graduating, he took a full-time position with IDP as their curriculum specialist. Though this is not the career path he imagined for himself when starting graduate school, his training in FGSS has prepared him well for his current position, which involves EDI work in both academic and student life spaces.
Lynne Stahl is the Humanities Librarian at West Virginia University. She earned her PhD in English from Cornell in 2015, and her research interest spans film, gender theory, popular culture, and critical information studies.
Cameron Scott received his PhD in Comparative Literature from Cornell in 2002 and an MA in Creative Writing (Poetry) from the University of Texas in 1999. He is currently a writer and editor at UCSF, the University of California’s all health-sciences campus. He has also worked as a science writer at Stanford University. He worked as a journalist for several years, focused on technology, health, and medicine. He lives in Oakland, CA.
