About Karen Kelsky

I am a former tenured professor at two institutions--University of Oregon and University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I have trained numerous Ph.D. students, now gainfully employed in academia, and handled a number of successful tenure cases as Department Head. I've created this business, The Professor Is In, to guide graduate students and junior faculty through grad school, the job search, and tenure. I am the advisor they should already have, but probably don't.

  1. This is great. Thank you for posting.

    One question: It is important to me that textbooks I use are not too expensive, for the sake of students’ finances. I feel that no textbook is a sacred text of Ultimate Importance, so if Nelson’s book costs $150 and Miller’s $50, well, bye Nelson.

    Would it be OK to state this in an interview? With a specific rationale why, and how I deal with stuff that might be better explained in Nelson’s book.

    My field is social anthropology.
