More good stuff from Kevin Birth on life as a faculty member

What I Wish I’d Known About Faculty Life: Teaching the Curriculum, Etc.

I remember when I was in graduate school, the best advice I was given was from a friend who had recently secured a tenure-track position. He said, “Kevin, it’s a big world out there, and most departments do not teach the sort of anthropology you’ve learned, and many places have people who are critical of it. You’ll need to learn more faster after becoming a professor than you ever have had to do in graduate school.”
