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.
