Episode #3: Comprehensive Examination
We’re so excited to introduce a new producer this week: Deb Lui. Deb’s piece explores the comprehensive exam process, that thing that stands in the way of becoming a fully dissertating, almost-scholar. It seems we’re developing a rhythm here on3620 of meditating on the academic life and landing in a spot that might seem hangdog. But it’s not hangdog! We’re exposing the constraints of our profession, but we’re gesturing to its complexity and potential.
Hope you enjoy it! And feel free to send us some feedback, either in the comments section below, or by contacting us.
