Join Geoff as he talks precarity and the alt-ac path with Dr. Nora Williams (@noraj_williams). She shares her thoughts about how her PhD prepared her for a life off the TT, and how she’s able to keep up with her own research agenda. She also talks about the struggles of wanting to keep active as a scholar when there is significant bias against those who aren’t traditionally “academic.” She also uses her POV from the alt-ac to suggest some ways academia might improve for job candidates going forward.
