Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work as an editor after finishing your M.A. or Ph.D.? Join PATHS and the Department of Art History for a conversation on launching careers and achieving leadership roles as editors in the art world. Panelist Gregory Nosan (Ph.D. English, UChicago) is the Executive Director of Publishing at The Art Institute of Chicago. Prudence Peiffer (Ph.D. Art History, Harvard) is an art historian, writer, and a former Senior Editor at Artforum. Peiffer and Nosan will discuss their career trajectories as well as the skills and qualities that they find most useful in their day-to-day work. The conversation will be moderated by Christine Mehring, Art History Department Chair and Professor of Art History and the College. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to best position themselves for this potential career path. A reception with light refreshments will follow the talk.
