Thread on #networking that extends beyond Hollywood to academics too. The thing I see grad students forget most is lateral networking. Find ppl you like in your field, ppl you can hang w/ at the annual conference & shit. When you all graduate you can support each others’ careers.
Some of my closest academic friends & I met at Society for Disability Studies or @nwsa as grad students at panels or, let’s be honest, events with free food/booze. Now we coauthor, invite each other to our campuses for talks, & support one another on the job market or TT.
Don’t just network to meet the people whose books you read in coursework. Network to meet the people whose new books you’ll assign in your own classes in a few years. Make friends. Academic is too bleak otherwise. #AcademicTwitter #PhDChat
