Samenvatting

The Road to Tenure offers humorous recollections of the messiness and confusion that fill the days of a pre-tenure academic-from graduate school through the postdoc and into the assistant professor days. The book's three sections roughly map onto the chronology of academic life, beginning with graduate school and the job search experience; followed by teaching, research, and service; and finally the challenges of family and academic identity. The book is not a how-to, nor does it emphasize lessons learned on the way to tenure. Instead, the collection earnestly, and with good humor, captures a significant and meaningful slice of the experience of pursuing academia in contemporary colleges and universities. For the doctoral student or newly hired faculty member, these essays will provide some comfort with their implicit suggestion that, while it's certainly hard work, you are not alone.

Recensie(s)

Learning from your mistakes is good, but learning from other people's hilarious mishaps is much better. While laughing and cringing, you'll get some wise advice and perspective from this gem of dark comedy. -- Paul Silvia, associate professor of psychology, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and author of How to Write A Lot There are precious few resources for new faculty members that get real about the messiness of academic life. The Road to Tenure is an irreverent window into the academic world that mentors in the best possible way: with honesty, humility and humor. I will be giving a copy to ALL of my mentees. -- Kerry Ann Rockquemore, Ph.D., president, National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity Warm, funny, and strikingly true stories about what it is like becoming and being a junior faculty member. This book made me feel like I was having a beer with a group of good friends telling battle stories of academic life. It stands as a reminder that winning the academic pie eating contest is rewarded simply - with more pie. -- Scott McDonald, Ph.D., associate professor of science education, Penn State University
