CONCLUSION

De toutes ces interventions, émerge un large consensus sur les capacités des Docteurs en sciences humaines et sociales à tracer leur voie professionnelle hors des sentiers académiques.
► En premier lieu, une expérience doctorale n’apporte pas seulement les connaissances scientifiques que le doctorant a l’habitude et le devoir de mobiliser. Le doctorat est un parcours professionnel qui apporte des savoirs faire et des savoirs être, sans cesse rappelés par les intervenants de cette journée comme des atouts qu’il faut apprendre à valoriser.
Un jeune Docteur:
- maîtrise la langue française et peut formuler clairement des choses complexes,
- a de l’aisance dans la prise de parole en public,
- sait analyser un corpus de données, quelles que soient les données, collecter et classer des informations, les rendre exploitables,
- peut gérer un projet de A à Z et des tâches multiples,
- apporter un regard neuf et aiguisé sur une situation,
- être une force de proposition,
- est capable de s’adapter à un nouvel environnement et aux autres,
- d’être réactif et de rebondir.
► Ensuite, le diplôme de Doctorat possède une valeur en tant que tel. C’est une valeur ajoutée pour l’entreprise qui fait le choix du long terme et celui de se distinguer de ses concurrents en employant un Docteur.
► Enfin, les intervenants ont prodigué de nombreux conseils utiles, et vécus,
pour s’insérer et évoluer dans le marché du travail:
- Créer et entretenir son réseau: carte de visite et profil sur un (des) réseau(x) professionnel(s)
- Identifier et nommer ses compétences
- Adapter la formalisation des compétences à l’employeur visé
- Persévérer.
- Garder une cohérence de projet sur le long terme
- Etre sensible et à l’écoute de ce qui se passe autour de soi
- Créer et saisir des opportunités en rapport avec la thèse.
Les intervenants ont conseillé aux doctorants et aux jeunes Docteurs d’être fiers de leur parcours et du travail accompli, et d’oser les mettre en valeur auprès de futurs employeurs.
Ils ont rappelé que mener un doctorat, c’est aussi être capable d’envisager et de créer les métiers de demain!

Pas d’université sans sciences de l’Homme

Le blog de Jean-Luc Vayssière. L'essor de l'université Paris-Saclay est l'occasion de réfléchir à la place des sciences humaines et sociales dans l'un des plus ambitieux projets que le monde universitaire français ait conçu. En effet, l’orientation dominante d’UPSa est celle des sciences exactes, de la nature et de l’ingénieur, de même que le Campus Condorcet, au nord de Paris, est tourné de manière prépondérante vers les sciences humaines et sociales.
Dans un cas comme dans l’autre, même s'il est important d'affirmer des priorités de recherche, il serait dommage de s'enfermer dans une sorte d’hémiplégie intellectuelle en se coupant de domaines entiers du savoir humain. J'y suis d’autant plus sensible que l'UVSQ a tout lieu de se féliciter de sa très grande interdisciplinarité, et qu'elle possède des atouts de premier plan dans le champ des sciences de l'Homme. Suite de l'article...

Bookings open for Storyville, the HEA’s Arts and Humanities conference

Booking is open for the HEA’s second annual Arts and Humanities conference, Storyville: Exploring narratives of learning and teaching, in Brighton 29-30 May. At the heart of the Arts & Humanities disciplines sit stories. Stories are everywhere, and Storyville seeks to explore the intersections between narrative and learning and teaching. The conference will reflect the innovation in learning and teaching which is taking place in all Arts & Humanities discipline areas.
The two-day conference comprises workshops (varying from 15 – 180 minutes), and paper sessions. A new option for submissions was added to the programme, in the form of offering 'wildcard' sessions. These give presenters the option of more time as well as encouragement to be creative. As a consequence, the main programme contains workshops and papers covering topics such as the power of field visits in studying religion, and a practical session using archives. The longer, wildcard, sessions include a workshop on oral storytelling, in which participants will learn how to tell a story (and do it!) and a collaborative excursion into Brighton using processes of improvisation and the ‘non-institutional environment’ to assert the value of uncertainty, disorientation and intuition in teaching and learning.
Throughout Storyville runs a strong theme of sharing good practice. The conference aims to invigorate delegates, giving them a new awareness of stories and identity in their teaching. The full draft programme is available on the HEA website. Complete your booking form and read more about the conference at the HEA website. On Twitter, follow @HEA_AH and follow #storyville13 for conversation leading up to the conference.

Confronting Challenges to the Liberal Arts Curriculum: Perspectives of Developing and Transitional Countries

Confronting Challenges to the Liberal Arts Curriculum: Perspectives of Developing and Transitional CountriesMCGILL PETERSON, Patti (ed.). Confronting Challenges to the Liberal Arts Curriculum: Perspectives of Developing and Transitional Countries. 2012. New York: Routledge.
This publication contributes in the field of comparative research on higher education in developing and transitional countries by filling in a specific gap in curricular content, which is implementing liberal arts coursework in undergraduate studies. The book analyzes the context, content, challenges and successes of such implementation, and further explores how curricular content is decided and how educational programs are structured.
Several authors bring in their knowledge to provide a wide scope to the discussion, thus bringing in case studies from China, India, Mexico, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, South Africa and Turkey.
This book is recommended to scholars and researchers in Higher Education as well as practitioners working to implement student and faculty exchange and raise awareness of curricular issues.

Social science is this year's theme for parks

Click here for THE homepageBy Elizabeth Gibney. Universities will this year start to build "social science parks" as a route to improving public services, according to a prediction published by Nesta, the foundation for innovation.
Contributing to an online article, "13 predictions for 2013", Adam Price, Nesta's public innovation lead, Wales, and a former MP for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr, said that just as high-tech science parks are used to commercialise university research, clusters of practice-based research institutes will soon spring up to help public services function better and more cost-effectively.

Grayling's college bids for free school

Click here for THE homepageBy John Morgan. New College of the Humanities, the privately funded higher education institution charging fees of £18,000 a year, plans to open a free school in partnership with a private school firm.
NCH says in a statement today that it has applied to the Department for Education to open New School of the Humanities, a school for 11 to 18-year-olds in the London borough of Camden.
Two universities, Birmingham and Chester, already have permission to open free schools.
NCH's school would be run in partnership with Bellevue Education Group, which owns seven private preparatory schools in the UK and two Swiss boarding schools. Read more...

AC Grayling's New College of the Humanities plans to open free school

The Guardian homeBy Robert Booth. AC Grayling: New school will provide a grounding in the humanities for students to develop as well-rounded individuals. A private university college set up by the philosopher AC Grayling is bidding to open a sister state secondary school where the pupils could have access to lectures by top academics including Richard Dawkins, Steven Pinker and Niall Ferguson.
The New College of the Humanities has applied to the education secretary Michael Gove to open a "co-educational free school for students of all backgrounds" in Camden, central London, with a specialism in humanities. When the university opened last September with its first 60 students it was widely criticised for providing an elitist education costing £18,000-a-year, twice the standard British university tuition fees.

Europe Looks for Better Ways to Measure the Value of the Arts and Humanities

http://chronicle.com/img/photos/biz/icons/worldwise-nameplate.gifBy Ellen Hazelkorn. How can universities demonstrate the benefit that arts and humanities research provides to society? It’s a perennial question and one that has become more urgent in Europe in recent years. I belong to a European consortium, supported by the Humanities in the European Research Area, that is investigating ways to better understand, capture, and measure the impact of the arts and humanities on society.
The arts and humanities have traditionally explained themselves in terms of intrinsic value; this has arguably been so since academe’s earliest days. While universities may differ in the emphasis they place on different disciplines, the belief that society benefits from the pursuit of knowledge and the scholarship generated by universities remains at the heart of the arts and humanities. This helps explain the strong endorsement of the liberal arts in the United States as the bedrock of undergraduate education. However, that certainty of value is now being challenged. Read more...

Humanities, social sciences get own part of Horizon 2020

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Jan Petter Myklebust. Work is in progress to give the humanities and social sciences a separate section in Horizon 2020, to be called ‘Europe in a Changing World’ and focusing on ‘secure societies’. The programme will have its own budget and be part of the sixth challenge in Horizon 2020. Many organisations in Europe, notably the League of Research Universities (LERU) and the European Alliance for the Social Sciences and Humanities, have lobbied hard for a separate programme for the humanities and social sciences. The organisation Net4society even collected 25,855 signatures to an open letter stating that “Europe needs a large social sciences and humanities-centred research programme to tackle its ‘Grand Social Challenges’!”
Research Europe reports that as early as in May 2012, the Council of Ministers had decided to call for such an initiative. Read more...

The Philosophers That Philosophers Like Best

http://chronicle.com/img/photos/biz/icons/percolator-art-new.gifBy Tom Bartlett. In a recent podcast, the hosts of Philosophy Bites called up well-known philosophers—people like Martha Nussbaum, Patricia Churchland, Michael Sandel—and asked them to name their favorite philosopher. Many laughed at first, perhaps because it’s odd to talk about philosophers as if they were football teams or pizza places. Others complained good-naturedly that they wished the question could have been submitted in advance so they would have had more time to think about it, which is exactly what you would expect from a philosopher.
Several named more than one. Others, like Peter Singer, came up with fairly obscure names (he picked the 19th-century British utilitarian Henry Sidgwick). The most surprising answer came from Catharine MacKinnon, who said her favorite philosopher is “the last woman I talked to, whoever she is.”
I tallied the results, which are below. I didn’t include those who received only a single vote, so apologies to Descartes, Frege, Montaigne, Plato, Socrates, and Thucydides. In comments on the Philosophy Bites blog, someone complained that no non-Western thinkers had been selected. Read more...
