In addition to the challenges many academics are facing with various work-from-home-arrangements, the pandemic has put economic strains on universities and other organizations, leading to a drop in traditional employment opportunities for academics. In this episode, the hosts consider the so-called alt-ac career as a possibility for academics to look outside of the narrow confines of tenure track positions and other teaching-centered appointments. Addressing alt-ac positions both as a long term career plan and as a way to "pivot" during these challenging times, the hosts outline their own experiences applying to as well as working in such roles in humanities-based fields.
