What is it to be a scientist or scholar? Growing Up in Academia is a conversation series with academics at different stages of their careers. It focuses on the sometimes short, sometimes long and winding roads behind the “official CV.”
Each event features an open conversation (interview) with a different faculty member, representing the broad spectrum of academic life. We will cover topics such as dealing with expectations (your own and others’), the role of luck/coincidence in scientific discovery, impostor syndrome, procrastination, and conflicts with advisors. Join us for a conversation about the human factors that universally inform the profession, but that too often remain unspoken. Each event will be hosted and presented by Lucia Melloni (Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics).
