Ph.D. Day Job–Part the Second

“Dr. Rogers suggests that alt-ac is less a matter of where you work than how — ‘with the same intellectual curiosity that fueled the desire to go to graduate school in the first place, and applying the same kinds of skills, such as close reading, historical inquiry or written argumentation, to the tasks at hand.’”

Over at The New York Timeswe get a reminder–did we need one?–that higher ed of all kinds is a means, not an end. All for starting an alt-ac MFA support group on the eastern seaboard, say aye (you’re welcome to do your party-planning in the comments).
