Spreading the word . . .

Good news! I've found my Inside Higher Ed columns mentioned on several different sites and blogs.

Here are a few examples:

1. The AHA Today blog, May 2010 edition, "Outside of Academia" (i.e. the crème de la crème, at least as for as employed and budding historians are concerned):

2. On Amplify. It's the 6th post on this page, under "A Wonderful Academic Career?"

3. Over at, under "Taking Time Out After Grad School"

It is great to know that other recent Ph.D.s out there, as well as employed historians and even those considering entering Ph.D. programs, are interested in hearing my story. We all have unique stories to share about our experiences in academe and, unfortunately, many of these tales have been less than optimistic as of late. My general sense is that there is a great deal of uncertainty, ambivalence, and fear out there. The more we share our stories and ideas, and pool our resources, the better off we'll be collectively, IMHO.
