I just wanted to invite everyone to participate in the GSC organized Virtual Book Club. We will be reading and discussing "So What Are You Going to Do with That?": Finding Careers Outside Academia. We will spend the next few months discussing how to apply the general advice in the book to our specific circumstances in the fields of theatre and performance studies. So get your copy of the book and then come to the website for the discussion. The first discussion question will be posted within the next few days.
Though this we anticipate that this will serve graduate students as we all move forward in thinking about how to apply our training and education upon graduation, we also encourage everyone to invite faculty at their institutions to participate as well. Our faculty mentors are being asked to mentor us through new paradigms they either did not face or pursue. It is our hope that this book club will give all of us the helpful tools and perspectives to navigate questions of employment in or out of the academy.
