Summary
"A collection of 25 short essays by humanists in all stages of their careers and from various kinds of institutions, How to Build a Life in the Humanities addresses the vexed issue of work-life balance in higher education today. Written in the first person in lively and engaging prose, these essays focus on a wide range of important topics pertaining to the professional and personal dimensions of academic life. Topics include life in a liberal arts college, community college or research university; teaching and paper grading; departmental and university citizenship; imposter phenomenon; post-tenure depression; life as a graduate student or adjunct; religious belief; issues of diversity, including class, race, gender, sexual orientation, and disability; and life in retirement or after leaving the academy. These candid, illuminating essays, which combine practical wisdom with meditative reflections upon the challenges of academic life, will be of interest to humanists of all ranks, from potential or beginning graduate students to seasoned professionals"--
