History’s Calling - Where Will it Take You? Webinar Series

Webinar Series

The History's Calling - Where Will it Take You? webinar series is designed to talk with historical experts and History alumni about their career path to show that:

  • Not all Historians have traditional teaching roles
  • Not all paths into historical fields are linear
  • History students can become qualified for a variety of jobs through internships and experiential learning
  • History students CAN find jobs that suit their multi-interests

Join us Thursday, January 20 at 11 a.m. MST for a live webinar with Leslie Hadfield, Associate Professor at BYU

Leslie Hadfield is currently an associate professor of history and the coordinator of Africana Studies at BYU. She enjoys teaching and constructing history, especially when it involves oral history. She has published two books: Liberation and Development: Black Consciousness Community Programs in South Africa (2016) and A Bold Profession: African Nurses in Rural Apartheid South Africa (2021). She is currently working on a third book project on the history of Kilimanjaro porters and guides with two Tanzanian colleagues. Hadfield cares deeply about equity and belonging, being an engaged and informed citizen, and celebrating different cultures. She also enjoys the outdoors and spending time with family. She holds degrees from Michigan State University (PhD), Ohio University (MA), and Utah State University (BA).



We are excited to announce our Winter 2022 featured guest far. Please join us as we hear from professionals, professors and students about the value of experiential learning and what they are doing with their degrees.

Our hope is that you can start to be able to answer the question, "What will you do with your degree?" with confidence and know what steps you need to take as you prepare for life post-graduation.
