About the Author
Katina L. Rogers is Co-Director of the Futures Initiative and Director of Programs and Administration of HASTAC at The Graduate Center, City University of New York.
"Covering every conceivable aspect of rethinking doctoral education in the humanities, Katina L. Rogers offers sound and sage advice on topics ranging from inclusion and diversity in graduate programs to the need for better mentoring and the relegitimization of the humanities in the public sphere. Her exceptionally timely, important, knowledgeable, and necessary book fills a real need in the humanities."--Michael Bérubé, coauthor of "The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom: Three Necessary Arguments"
"Katina L. Rogers deftly skewers narrowed notions of scholarly success and makes an urgent case for graduate education as a pathway to practical, meaningful work. This book is right on time. We need versatile, thinking people in the postpandemic public sphere and the humanities in the driver's seat for structural changes to come."--Bethany Nowviskie, Dean of Libraries and Professor of English, James Madison University
"Written from a first-person perspective by the author and providing a review of resources and interviews, Katina L. Rogers's book is a refreshing look at the subsequent pathways for academics within the humanities to explore when the traditional road to success within the academy has been upended. . . . This book does something special--it empowers, if not emboldens, the humanities doctorate, and encourages them to see the world in a way that is deserving of their time and hard work."--Kristen Vogt Veggeberg "LSE Review of Books" (1/15/2021 12:00:00 AM)
"Perhaps the most useful thing about Rogers' book is that it offers ways to start making change-right away-no matter your position in the academy. . . . The task of reforming humanities graduate training for the better is something for us all to take on-students as well as teachers. It's up to all of us, and we all have a role to play. As much as Rogers' book is a call for institutional reform, it is also a call for individual and collective action."--Sonali Majumdar and Brandon Walsh "Scholars Lab blog" (1/21/2021 12:00:00 AM)
