Interesting essay on graduate education

Dear H-Grad,

You may be interested in this essay by an art history professor at Rutgers: "On Graduate Education: Is it Worth it? A Primer (with Memoir) for the Art History Graduate Student" by Dr. Susan Sidlauskas. Sidlauskas was one of my graduate school mentors and I saw how much energy she put into research, teaching, and mentoring students -- it was a bit dizzying at times. It is illuminating to learn the ups and downs of how she got there.

All best,
