The lovely ladies at Arkansas Women Bloggers have been kind enough to allow me to be a guest on their site this week. My essay is a reflection on having a baby while a doctoral student, but I have a feeling my experience is not unlike that of a lot of women who work outside the home and make babies. The book entitled Mama, Ph.D: Women Write About Motherhood and Academic Life (Rutgers University Press 2008), edited by Elrena Evans and Caroline Grant, is a series of essays by women in academia whose stories closely parallel the experience I had and inspired me to put down in words my own story. I owe a special thanks to author Christina Katz for promoting this book on her blog “The Empowered Writer” and sending it my way.
Please click over to their site for my post, “Babies in Academia,” and then look around at the great writers featured there.
