S2:E11 Natalie Berkman - Academic Management and Ed Tech
Show Notes

When does the desire for a TT job surrender to the grim reality of the academic job market and need for personal fulfillment, and when it does, what happens to that desire? Does it disappear entirely, or does it just take on another form--a select-as-you-go brand of scholarship? Is the space between desire and surrender really the only path, or does another, of one's own design, exist at their convergence?

My conversation with Natalie Berkman, PhD in French literature, explores this topic by way of her own transition from the academy to a world of new, previously unimagined opportunities, that successfully unites desire and surrender. 

Enjoy!
