Book Information

   

Title: Surviving Linguistics
Subtitle: A Guide for Graduate Students
URL: http://www.cascadilla.com/surviving.html
Description:

Surviving Linguistics offers linguistics students clear, practical, and
focused advice on how to succeed in graduate school and earn a degree. The
book is a valuable resource for students at any stage of their graduate
career, from learning to write linguistics papers through completing their
dissertation and finding a job.

Along the way, the author explains the process of submitting conference
abstracts, presenting papers at conferences, publishing journal articles,
writing grant applications, creating a CV, and much more. Throughout
Surviving Linguistics, Macaulay emphasizes the importance of working with
advisors, dissertation committees, and fellow graduate students. The book
includes exercises, helpful references to numerous books and on-line
resources, and an index.

Although Macaulay focuses on North America in explaining the structure of
graduate school and the process of applying for academic jobs, the advice
in this book about writing and research in linguistics will be useful to
linguistics students everywhere.

Surviving Linguistics is available in paperback and library binding (no
dust jacket). We also offer paperback 10-packs for professors, advisors,
and departments who want to give this valuable guide to their students.
