What’s Foucault Got to Do with It: Diverse Career Pathways for the International Educator

International education is a field that attracts people who want to humanize international relations, foster community and inclusion, and promote mutual understanding across borders. This session will highlight diverse avenues and strategies for pursuing a rewarding, dynamic career in study abroad. The panelists will consider how theories, methods, and experiences from their graduate studies apply to their current work and engage the audience in a critical conversation on the merits of pursuing a doctorate or other credentials. The session will conclude with a facilitated dialogue for participants on career tips and recommended job search resources, in order to make informed decisions that best support their career goals.
