Graduate Study for the 21st Century: How to build an academic career in the humanities, by Gregory Colon Semenza
An except from the author’s description: This is a book designed solely for graduate students who wish to become professors on the tenure track; it does not spend time on alternative career paths. Its unique focus on building a professorial career means that this book dedicates a significant amount of attention to professional development issues, including publishing, attending conferences, and job searching. It emphasizes how a smart and informed “streamlining” approach to graduate study and teaching can lead to both a meaningful (and relatively short) graduate career and the sort of professional accomplishments that will make you a standout on the job market. Graduate Study for the 21st Century is the only guide that recognizes the specific needs of students in the humanities.
