How to Move to a New City (Again) and Settle In

The job market is scary for many academics and not just because it is challenging to land a job at all. The vagaries of the market can mean years of moving from contingent position to contingent position, waiting to land a stable job in a place where we can confidently put down roots. Even tougher, where we end up is often out of our control, far from the friends, family, and communities that make a place home. Moving is a logistical hassle, sure, but it is also a huge struggle on a personal level.

In this webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski discusses strategies for dealing with the mental, emotional, and spiritual toll moving takes by sharing ways to make any new place home, even if it’s only for a year or two.
