Alternate Careers for Ph.D.'s in the Humanities.
Rigolot, Carol, Ed.
Life insurance executives, university administrators, faculty, and young humanists held a conference to determine how these young humanists might serve business and how business organizations might help alleviate the current crisis in academia. The topics discussed were the following: "The Situation in Academia Today"; "What Has Been Done to Alleviate the Situation?"; "Obstacles to Transition"; "Business Perceptions of Academia"; "The Skills of Ph.D.'s"; "The Needs of Business"; "What Can Young Humanities Ph.D.'s Do?"; "What Can Universities Do?"; and "What Can Business Organizations Do?" From the business standpoint, this corps of people could represent a new source of talent. Whatever steps are taken to resolve these problems, their consequences will be felt by society as a whole.
