Spring meetups

We have a spring series of meetups for mutual support and networking. Want to discuss your work-life dilemmas? Want feedback on work in progress? Just want to get away from the computer? Please come.

We’ll meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month from 5-6:30 p.m. In February and April, the location is The Works in Amherst; in March and May, The Roost in Northampton. (Note that there are five Wednesdays in March. The meetup is on the fourth Wednesday, the 23rd.)

As colleges and universities move toward short-term hiring patterns, many scholars work as adjunct faculty or freelancers or have alternative careers. Hidden Scholars is a regional organization for scholars who are actively engaged in academic study, but who do not have a permanent institutional affiliation. Most have the Ph.D. or equivalent.  Founded in 2012, the group has been covered by the Chronicle of Higher Education and by Adjunct Nation. Follow this blog for further information and news.
