Winter 2022 Book Club: Vocation Across the Academy

This January, join our online book discussion group with graduate student, faculty, and professional women.

Do you feel that institutions of higher education are more fragmented than ever, and academics find it hard to understand or even appreciate one another’s fields of study? Do you long for the academy to be a place where everyone is encouraged to pursue the common good and students grapple with questions of purpose and meaning?   

Gather with fellow academics to talk about these questions and more as we discuss Vocation Across the Academy: A New Vocabulary for Higher Education, ed. by David S. Cunningham (Oxford University Press 2017).

Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. Eastern

Jan 26 — Calling without Borders: Vocational Themes across the Academy
Feb 9 — Calling in Context: Fields of Study and Resources for Vocational Reflection
Feb 23 — Called into the Future: Professional Fields and Preparation for Life
March 9 — Vocation at Full Stretch: Overcoming Institutional Obstacles to the Language of Call

You may be able to access the book through your institution's library subscription to Oxford Scholarship Online or you can purchase it at your local bookseller.
