I was talking to some fellow PhD graduates the other day, and we were talking about the relief of deciding not to apply for TT jobs anymore, because we don't....actually....really....want those jobs. I really don't think I want to be a professor. A scholar, yes. Professor, no.

How Much Is a Word Worth? - Member Feature Stories - Medium
The most common complaint is that the numbers just don’t add up to a good living. Without signing writers to exclusive deals, most magazines top out in the $1 to $2 per word range (exclusivity can get you $3). It’s possible to publish 30,000 words of freelance writing a year at those rates — about eight articles the length of the one you’re reading — but it’s extremely difficult to land and execute that many assignments successfully. And if you manage to pull it off and place a full year’s worth of writing in top-flight publications, you may make as much as the average personal trainer: $60,000.

NYU Center for Experimental Humanities | Graduate Program
Advising extends beyond course selection and the master's thesis. An interdisciplinary graduate degree can be shaped to reach many different goals, and it is here that the expertise of the faculty proves especially valuable. CEH graduates move into doctoral programs, professional schools, and many kinds of productive careers, ranging from teaching at the secondary level to mass media production to Wall Street. New York University, the Graduate School, and the Center for Experimental Humanities possess a wide array of resources to assist in the formation and completion of these longer-term objectives.

How denialists weaponize media literacy and what to do about it / Boing Boing
danah boyd's SXSW Edu keynote, What Hath We Wrought? builds on her essay from 2017 about the relationship of media literacy education to the rise of conspiracy theories and the great epistemological rift in which significant numbers of people believe things that are clearly untrue, from climate denial to flat-earthing.

Advice from a Contingent Faculty Member on Career Directions for PhDs in English | Leeann Hunter, Ph.D.
To be sure, my non-tenure track position, even right from the start, was legions above other contingent faculty positions. In 2012, I was offered a 3-3 teaching load on a semester system with a salary in the mid-40Ks, but this offer was made as a spousal accommodation, and it was extended to me because I had a tenure-track offer at another institution. Nevertheless, I spent my first two years at WSU teaching in the composition program, feeling at times like I was a graduate student again, as if that PhD was nothing more than a certificate of debt and guilt. Even after 6 years at the institution, my lack of value and relevance in my department is enough to drive me to tears, but I have also learned that senior faculty members all across the university have experienced these same feelings of irrelevance.

MyData Hubs -
OK, but what does it mean to be a “Local hub”?

Hubs can be in all sizes and in all forms, what fits best to you. Our proposed action points would be to gather people from businesses, public and third sector to common meetups, work together on the MyData declaration as starting point for discussions and develop further strategies based on shared interest.

After the first meetups, it is highly recommended to define a clear mission, which should be aligned also with MyData mission. After some time, we should also be able to have some objective measures to track your contributions to the network, like meetups or events that you run, use cases that you collect, materials you produce, etc. We’d like to also see the key drivers of the hubs taking part of the Global network meetings.


Cool, it goes well with my ideas. I’d like to start a local MyData initiative in … What’s my next move?

Great! You are most welcome to join our global network and we are happy to help you kickoff this in your local area. Here’s what you can do as your first moves:
