What is your mission?
At Theory Meets Praxis, we believe that “starving artists” (and starving adjuncts) should be a thing of the past. Our goal is to help you find a fulfilling job – whether part-time or full-time – that makes the best use of your skills and expands the influence of the humanities beyond academia.
We believe that humanities / liberal arts graduates are highly specialized professionals with talents that should extend beyond academia. We reject the narrative of failure or embarrassment for master’s and doctoral degree graduates who choose to pursue other career options. We also refuse to believe that success is measured in dollars. This site is designed to be a resource for humanities graduates through a variety of resources: articles, interviews, and a career quiz linking to resources on how to get started in a new field. We also offer a newsletter and a Humanities in the Wild comics (for the lighter side!). Click here to read About Us.
Is this a subscription site?
Access to Theory Meets Praxis is 100% free. You can also sign up to receive the Theory Meets Praxis newsletter at no cost. See the subscription module above ^^

You can sign up for the free Theory Meets Praxis newsletter or read through our article archive. See the newsletter subscription above ^^
You don’t have any information on your site about [a specific career] and I’d like to learn if my degree would be a good fit. Can I submit a suggestion?
We would love to hear from you! Email us at email@example.com with your suggestions for future article topics, interviews, or comments.
It’s a little overwhelming to think about making a dramatic change right now. Do you have anything lighter on your site?
Check out our Humanities in the Wild comics!
How do you make money?
Theory Meets Praxis is 100% free for humanities grads and we are planning to keep it that way. This is a start up registered as an LLC. Plans for the future are to grow the number of site visitors and subscribers to the free newsletter over time, then to create revenue streams based entirely on advertising income. The only time that we would charge you, the job seeker, would be for occasional events that we might offer like a humanities conference or special workshop.
Who is this site for? Undergrad, graduate students, or adjuncts?
This site is for anyone who has studied in the humanities or liberal arts and is looking to explore what career options are available to them. Our content appeals to undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and adjuncts.
