Connor Williams ’09 is currently pursuing a PhD in History and African American Studies at Yale. He is happy to share advice, experiences, and answer questions for students considering pursuing an advanced degree in the humanities. He hopes to demystify both the application process and the humanities grad school experience itself. In addition to discussing a PhD in the humanities, he’s also open to discussing post-doctorate employment prospects, including work in museums, private schools, and state educational offices (such as historical societies, state libraries, and so forth). Prior to Yale, Connor also taught for several years in private schools, and also earned an M.A. at Dartmouth. Open to all majors in any humanities field, and all class years welcome as you explore options for after graduation. Lunch of assorted sandwiches will be available.
