The DHI's year in review

The DHI’s Year in Review

As the 2021-2022 school year comes to an end, the DHI invites you to catch up on any content that you may have missed this year. 

On our Youtube channel, we have recordings of events that range from Book Chats with faculty to our PhD Unlimited series which focuses on career resources. Watch Charles Walker, Professor of History, and Liz Clarke discuss their graphic history of Juan Bautista Tupac Amaru, a descendant of the last Inca rulers, or find out more about how sound is central to Indigenous self-determination and resurgence movements in Sound Relations: Native Ways of Doing Music History in Alaska with Jessica Bissett Perea (Dena’ina), Associate Professor of Native American Studies. The DHI also hosted talks about critical issues in our society like the ongoing war in Ukraine and the possibilities of art as protest.  

If you’re looking to develop skills for the job market over the summer, check out this PhD Unlimited talk on how to leverage a PhD into a career in UX research or this workshop on how to use Imagine PhD to explore career paths.

This year, the DHI was also proud to launch its Podcasting Across the Humanities page, which serves as a hub for podcasting projects across campus. The page features UC Davis podcasts like Unfold, a podcast that breaks down complicated problems and unfolds curiosity-driven research, and The Backdrop, a monthly interview program hosted by Soterios Johnson that features UC Davis researchers and scholars working in the social sciences, humanities, arts and culture. Be sure to read about student-run podcasts in our Podcast University article series and learn about students’ experiences at the National Humanities Center’s Podcasting the Humanities Workshop.
