Faculty Practitioner Career Talk: Jessie Labov

Thursday, March 1, 2018, 12:45 pm – 1:30 pm

Graduate students hear all the time that they need a plan for their professional futures. At the same time, they must be prepared to take advantage of the unforeseen opportunities that are likely to present themselves along the way. This winter, four faculty practitioners will share their career stories with CEU students. This is a great opportunity to learn about the roles both planning and chance can play as individuals chart their paths.

Bring a Brown Bag lunch and join us for an informal talk about careers and professional life.

Join us for a faculty practitioner career talk Jessie Labov, Resident Fellow at CEU's Center for Media, Data and Society (CMDS) and Project Manager, Text Analysis Across Disciplines ITI.

Jessie Labov has directed a number of digital humanities projects concerned with issues of canon formation, text mining, and mapping the receptive pathways of literary journals. At CEU, she is a lead on the Text Analysis Across Disciplines (TANAD) project, which grew out of CEU’s Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI), an 18-month, interdisciplinary preparatory project funded by the university’s Humanities Initiative to map, take inventory, and explore existing Digital Humanities projects within CEU. Within this framework, Labov is teaching the university wide courses TANAD: Data Collection and Curation (Fall 2017) and TANAD: Text Analysis and Text Mining (Spring 2018). Prior to joining CEU, Labov was associate professor in the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures at Ohio State University. Labov holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from New York University and B.A. in Literature from Harvard.

Upcoming talks: Alexis Diamond (date TBD)
