Three scholars in the humanities and social sciences share reflections on their own professional experiences in academia, including the advantages and disadvantages of pursuing an academic career. They provide insights into finding a mentor, surviving the dissertation process, getting a job, obtaining tenure, publishing, consulting, intellectual property, and opportunities for academics in the corporate world, as well as issues of family, gender and the personal side of academic life. Written as an informal conversation between the three authors, this text is intended for both those considering a career in academia, as well as those already in the early stages of such a career.
