deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 8, 2019

The changes in the job market and the difficulties for landing a tenure track academic position have been a game changer during the last five years. As many graduate programs in the country have decided to accept lesser students annually, others have devised innovative solutions and have highly engaged in training students beyond academia. This roundtable aims at opening a conversation about professional careers outside academia. The roundtable welcomes speakers who have experience working beyond academia and can guide students and peers towards a professional career path.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

This roundtable will explore the liminal role of graduate students who teach or TA courses while also working on their own graduate coursework. In particular, this session will examine the way that engaging in and constantly switching between these two classroom roles may cause qualities from each role to interpenetrate with both positive and negative effects on the graduate student. This session welcomes shorter 10-minute presentations of academic or nonfiction meditations on graduate students who negotiate their teaching and studying roles.
