DemSemX: Academic Midlife on July 23 and 30

DemSemX is back this summer with two sessions on academic midlife on July 23 and 30, beginning at 1:00 Central.

Within academia, there is a lot of focus and advice around getting tenure—understandably, as it represents a singular evaluation hurdle within tenure-granting institutions. Yet, academic careers can be long, and there are many decisions to be made after tenure about how to invest one’s time and energy. In this pair of sessions, six scholars—Hiram Beltrán-Sánchez (UCLA), Jennie Brand (UCLA), Jack DeWaard (Minnesota), Adam Gamoran (William T. Grant Foundation), Jennifer Glass (UT at Austin), and Zhenchao Qian (Brown)—will discuss midlife in academia and how they have approached choices within their careers. 

This event is co-sponsored by: Center for Family and Demographic Research (BGSU); Population Studies and Training Center (Brown); Cornell Population Center (Cornell); Population Studies Center (UMich); Minnesota Population Center (UMN) ; Population Research Institute (PSU); Texas Population Research Center (UT-Austin); California Center for Population Research (UCLA); Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology (Washington), Center for Demography and Ecology (UW–Madison).
