Thoughts on life after the PhD
Not surprisingly, Rebecca Schuman’s “PhDon’t” Slate piece has generated plenty of impassioned agreement and disagreement in the blogosphere and beyond. Some of the responses made me nod my head even more vigorously, some of them made me scratch my head, and some of them just made me want to scream YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT in a very loud voice. Rather than comment extensively on any of the responses, I’ll just take this opportunity to provide a round-up of some of the articles I’ve seen.
I’d like to try and break down some of the arguments for and against humanities grad school that pop up repeatedly in a lot of these pieces, but for now I’ll just let the writing speak for itself. Please feel free to link to other posts or articles that I’ve missed.
