Reflections On Our Way to Europe

As this goes out to you today, I am on my way, accompanied by my partner in crime Kellee Weinhold, to Scotland to start a month-long speaking tour of Scotland, England, Denmark, and Switzerland.

Here’s the schedule:

University of Aberdeen: April 25-26
University of St. Andrews: April 27
University of Edinburgh: April 29
Kings College London: May 3
London School of Economics: May 4
University of Oxford: May 6
University of Cambridge: May 9
University of Warwick: May 10
Roskilde University, Denmark: May 12
University of Zurich, Switzerland: May 19

I’ll be speaking mainly about the US academic job market, but also, at different points, about the post-ac transition, interviewing, and academic leadership for women.

Here’s where we’re going, pictorially:

There are moments when you wonder, how did I get from where I was, to where I am now?  And you marvel. This is one of those moments.  That is all.

  1. Karen, it’s great to hear you’ll be stopping by Cambridge – TPII has been so helpful! Could you please share details of the time and place of your talk on 9 May, or even just the particular college or department that’s hosting you? Cambridge is extraordinarily decentralized, and we can’t figure out how to find you. Thanks!

    • I’ll be at Cambridge on May 9, hosted by Steve Joy of the Careers Service. The whole event is 1-5, but i’m not sure if it’s all open. Check with STeve! Hope you can come!

      • Thanks so much, Karen! I’ll keep an eye on the Careers Service website (and tell PhDs and post-docs of my acquaintance to come, too, if they can). Safe travels!
