I’m Now a Contributing Author for GradHacker, an Inside Higher Ed Blog

Update, 12/2/11: GradHacker is now part of Inside Higher Ed. Please visit us at our new home!

I’m happy to announce that I’m a contributing author for GradHacker, a blog “dedicated to creating a community of grads who can benefit from hearing the stories, tips, and challenges of others who are experiencing the same things.” I’ve been a frequent reader of the site, and I’m looking forward to working with managing editors Alex Galarza and Katy Meyers as well as the rest of the GradHacker team.

Here, I typically don’t write about graduate education, pedagogy, research, or professionalization. I think that  my contributing author position at GradHacker will provide the right kind of space to discuss these topics, and I’m excited about the conversations that await.

Let’s get the discussion started. Read my inaugural post about making the most of your final year in graduate school,and let me know how you plan to “squeeze it like a lemon; soak it up like a sponge.”

Of course, I’ll keep posting here at my home blog. As I’ve mentioned, it’s a space where I can think critically about the  world around me and things I do in it — the books I read, the television and films I watch, the hobbies (backpacking) I pursue. Importantly, my posts are, by their very nature, unfinished ideas: they’re musings that represent the beginning of conversations in which anyone can participate.
