  1. Hi ? I am Contract Monster Slayer of Purgatory, yet you're all free to truncate my name however you wish, so long as I know you're referring to me. Anyway, this is my first day here on Grad Cafe in what I hope is my first and only year as an applicant. Then again, I've got quite the story, so I could be here a while. But hey, you tell me. Here it goes... STORY TIME (Read on if you want more detail/Skip if you don't) I am a former M.A. philosophy student/TA. I departed from my program without graduating for two reasons: (1) Incompatibility with the program in terms of research i
  2. Hi, I'm in my second semester as a Ph.D. student in Comparative Literature. I know some people might think that it's too early for me to start worrying about what to do to get hired, others might be thinking that it's never too early, others might be saying "you're a comparative lit. major, there are no jobs" lol, but please just stick with me a moment. I'm looking for advice on how I can become a more competitive applicant when applying for assistant professor jobs (and similar jobs) after I finish my Ph.D. I'm technically first-generation college student (my parents dropped out of coll
  3. Hello very helpful people! Hope you all are doing well. I've begun submitting my apps—about half way through and have done my top choice because it was due December 1. But on Saturday I found out I've been accepted into a conference for February— a whole other story is how I'm going to prepare for that... My question is: should I reach out to the schools I've submitted my applications to already? I'm going to update my resume and unsubmitted apps to reflect this upcoming conference.
  4. Has anyone here applied for other opps? Residencies/ conferences etc? I thought we could keep each other posted on when notifications/ interviews/ etc. go out.
  5. Hey, anyone going to Southwest PCA and possibly want to meet up for a panel/dinner/something? It's my first conference, so I'm very excited and very nervous!
  6. Hey guys! This might be an absolutely ridiculous question, but I'm going to ask anyway. I just started a (fully funded) MA program, and I'm trying to figure out if I want to pursue a PhD after graduation. I've been trying to find some conferences to boost my CV but I've kind of run into a roadblock - how do you guys find conferences?? My professors will occasionally send along emails for conferences, but none of them have really related to what I'd like to specialize in (Modernism/horror studies). Should I just google it and hope for the best?
  7. I would really like to begin submitting for conferences, but I know nothing about the conference-paper submission processes or criteria or etiquette or basically anything. I have past completed research I could discuss/submit, and I have ongoing directions of research with no results quite yet (what I have is evidence of a gap in our field, and an argument for the importance of filling this gap). Is it appropriate to present such things at conferences? The one I'll begin with is a subnational conference. I will be a second-year grad student this year, and have minimal publications, but e
  8. I don't think this has been covered (based on my search of this site) yet, but I am wondering about entering student paper competitions. My field has smaller divisions within our main association and I belong to several of them. One division recently announced a student paper competition (to coincide with the big national conference in the fall, which I'm attending) and I'm wondering whether or not to apply. I have a paper that will be done soon that I'm writing with my PI looking at a research question using her data. I will be first author and of course she will also be on it (we have d
  9. My advisor assigned me a project using a statistical method I don't think he fully understood. It's new, one he hasn't used before, and it is in a dense, poorly written article. I have expressed to him that I felt we didn't understand it well enough, that we should consider collaborating with others to make sure the method was tenable, and that I felt it might not work. However, he blew these concerns off. When the initial results looked promising, I let it go. A few months later, my latest results look weird as hell. I reread the article for hundredth time to see if we had missed somethi
  10. I know questions on the value of conferences and publications have been floated a number of times, but I haven't found the answers all that satisfying (in part because it clearly varies by field and also by the quality of said publications and conferences). First a bit of background: I'm applying to programs in political theory both here in the US and in Canada, I'm prepping for Round 2 of grad applications (last year was sub-par in terms of acceptances) and that has included participating in more academic conferences, trying to get a couple publications under my belt, etc. My GPA is sub-par 3
  11. Hey guys. I was just wondering, is it normal/expected for undergraduate English students to publish papers or present at conferences? Have any of you guys done these things in your undergraduate years? I feel like I saw somewhere on these forums someone mentioning publishing as an undergrad or presenting their first paper at a conference...I've never done any of these things before (I'm currently a junior) nor have any of my English professors ever even mentioned such things. I actually just had to do a bit of research to find out what conferences are and what it even means to present a paper.
  12. Hi everyone! I just would appreciate your advice. I just finished undergrad where I did independent research that was accepted into a fairly well-known regional conference for a round-table discussion with 4 other people who also did research on my topic. What exactly does a roundtable discussion entail? What kind of preparation should I do before hand? Advice? I'm so nervous! Thank you in advance!
  13. Hi all, I'm an MA-holding, humanities adjunct at a community college, and I was recently accepted to present a conference paper this spring. The conference is within driving distance (3-4 hours), but since my current department only offers travel funds to its tenure track faculty, I'm going to be left paying transport and lodging expenses myself. My question is this: do you happen to know of any other places I can look for funding? I will apply for grants from the conference itself, but I'm interested in whether or not you know of anywhere else -- NPOs, etc. Thanks for whatever help yo
  14. I'd like to present my research at http://abscicon2012.arc.nasa.gov. But the costs (conference+travel+hotel costs) - which might approach $1000, are a bit of a deterrent. On the other hand, the networking opportunity might be one that may be impossible to get anywhere else. But there's always a chance that I might get no networking at all. I can understand that conferences were very important in the pre-Internet era. But now it's simply easier just to find people you're interested in and to email them. They might be more accessible in a conference (since they're prepared to "waste" the
