Three faculty members from different types of academic institutions (Maria Carone; Lawrence University; Martina Lindseth, UW-Eau Claire; Jennifer Redmann, Franklin & Marshall) will discuss various aspects of their jobs – including those less evident to a novice; describe how graduate students can prepare for careers in academia; describe what qualities they consider particularly desirable in colleagues; and explain what they look for in applicants’ dossiers. The format will be interactive, including small-group discussions. Refreshments will be served. Although the event is being organized by German, graduate students from Scandinavian and Slavic are most welcome.
