Please join Penn State faculty, students, and staff in a discussion focused on the alternative academic (#alt-ac) careers in which a growing number of scholars trained in the liberal arts, including literary studies, are employed. Six invited speakers—scholars working in alternative academic careers on and off university campuses and faculty who have been leading voices on issues affecting contingent, non-academic, and alternative academic labor—join an equal number of Penn State presenters to explore what this new reality means in a rapidly transforming information age, university environment, and labor market.
