Looking for an academic job or a place in grad school?
While I slack off from writing real posts, instead I thought I’d give a wholly narcissistic shout out to some of my earlier posts. If you or someone you know is on the academic job market in media and cultural studies, this time last year I wrote a multi-part series with some advice, and some great folk contributed their own advice in the comments too, so be sure to read them. Earlier this year, I also wrote a three part series on applying to grad school, and once again some great minds chipped in down in the comments, so read those too.
The academic job market pieces, and links:
- Introduction, and a Warning
- A Timeline
- Think Like a Search Committee
- Application Materials
- “Inside” Hires
