Liza, Ana, and I are very pleased to announce a new series we’ll be starting on the SEM Student Union blog. Inspired by In Discipline contributors Gertrud Huber, Iva Nenic, and Liam Barnard, we decided to begin a series highlighting the joys and challenges of becoming/being a parent while pursuing a graduate degree in ethnomusicology. We’ve asked friends, colleagues, and professors to write about their experiences. Unlike In Discipline, there was no standardized questionnaire for our contributors. They were asked only to share what they felt was most important about the subject.
We’d also like to extend this invitation to our readers as well: if you have experiences in parenthood while in graduate school and would like to share them with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
