Ronin Institute Unconference: The Future of Careers in Scholarship
The landscape of academic careers is changing rapidly, and the traditional academic job market is more competitive than ever before. The production of PhDs far exceeds the number of available permanent positions. Even those limited positions are under attack, as universities rely more and more on adjunct faculty, and at many universities, the protections of tenure are being rolled back. A shift towards running universities “like a business” means increasing pressure to bring in outside funding and a reduced commitment to fields where funding is less abundant.
To tackle these issues, the Ronin Institute for Independent Scholarship will be hosting a one-day meeting on “The Future of Careers in Scholarship” on Saturday, November 5 at The Democracy Center, located at 45 Mount Auburn St., Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The meeting will follow an “unconference” format, where the participants will work together to shape the details of the agenda.
