Philosophy Faculty Sam Cowling on Early Career Conferences


“While graduate conferences are a tremendous help to graduate students (and graduate students alone), it’s a striking feature of the profession that, upon receiving one’s PhD, the number of conference possibilities often plummets considerably,” says Assistant Professor of Philosophy Sam Cowling in an article for the GLCA/GLAA Consortium for Teaching and Learning.

“The consequences of this demographic oddity can be tough for early career researchers,” he continues. “After all, junior faculty have typically left their familiar geographical and intellectual communities for new positions and are working to carve out new projects and networks. The resulting lack of conference opportunities for early career researchers therefore marks yet another difficulty to surmount on the arc toward tenure.”
