Next meetup: Thursday, August 16 (details below). This fall, we’ll experiment with more focused programming, in response to a number of suggestions. And as some scholars have requested, days and times will vary.
The meetup starts at 5:00 p.m., once again at Amherst Brewing Company, 10 University Drive. This will be an informal occasion for mutual support and getting acquainted.
Programs in September through November will be in the Amherst Room at the Jones Library, 43 Amity Street, Amherst.
The first program: Opportunities for Earning outside Teaching.
A brief talk by a member with some interesting ideas, followed by discussion. Feel free to contribute your ideas, experiences, advice, and questions. Tuesday, September 11, 7:30-8:30 p.m. Light refreshments provided; bring your own coffee. Sorry about the unfortunate date.
For post-meeting conviviality, Amherst Coffee and the High Horse pub are within easy reach.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 11, at 5:00, and Thursday, November 15, at 7:45. Topics are still TBA, but may include the adjunct situation; staying focused; re-entering the job market after time off; social relationships in departments, and more.
We’ll see how this goes. If it’s useful, we’ll continue in the spring. Social meetups will also continue!
