Special Thanks and Looking Ahead

This is just a short post to thank Will Duffy and Kristen Pond for their respective series on conceptualizing the dissertation and making the transition from graduate student to faculty member.

The month of November was absolutely amazing thanks to these insightful and generous academics. If you're new to the blog and would like to read back over these amazing posts, just have a look over at the menu bar on the right-hand side of this page and click on the month of November!

Next up on Constructing the Academy:

Look for a new post next week addressing rejection in the world of the burgeoning academic. While this may sound like a depressing topic (and it can be), rejection is something that we all have to deal with on a fairly regular basis, and if you're not very good at dealing with it rejection can become paralyzing. So, next week's post will be geared towards dealing with rejection in healthy ways. Stay tuned!
