Midcareer issues

  • Mary E. Hunt


There is an expression called the “post-tenure blues.” Some women get it and some women do not. It is related to a set of questions about midcareer changes, promotion, or advancement not necessarily related to tenure. Some women, once having attained tenure or having been tenured for a number of years, wonder, “What next?” “Is this all there is?” We may ask ourselves, “How do I keep my career alive?” “How do I teach the same required courses when the repetition becomes boring?” “Do I want to stay at the same institution?” “What new directions in research and teaching or community activism might I make?”
