FYI: (Non)academic Interdisciplinary Career Issues
I am looking for linguists who would like to discuss career issues related
to interdisciplinary work (in an academic environment or elsewhere) and
outreach. Ideally, I would like to share feedback on drafts of job
application materials, particularly statements of research interests (or,
more broadly, professional mission statements).
If you are interested in this type of discussion, or if you know of an
existing discussion group, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). If such a
group does not exist yet and there is sufficient interest, I will be happy
to create one.
I'm already aware of these resources:
The ''Careers'' section of The Chronicle of Higher Education
Re-envisioning the Ph.D.
Dan Sperber's article ''Why Rethink Interdisciplinarity?''
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
