3. zine release: navigating grad school as a woman of color
thinking about my journey and paying it forward
Hi there! I’m Ida, and this is tiny driver, a newsletter about research, pedagogy, culture and their intersections. Thank you for being here. Reply anytime, I love hearing from you.
This week’s newsletter will be on the shorter side, as it focuses on one main item. I wrote that it was “coming soon” in my first newsletter, and I am so happy that I can finally share it. I hope that you all enjoy!
What I write.
The zine is here!!
As I’ve written elsewhere, I started to write this zine during quarantine as a way of doing two things: (1) processing the journey I had just completed, and (2) hoping to share the things I learned with others. I wrote this over three months while I was preparing for the next chapter of my life, and it was a wonderful way to look back on all I had gone through in getting my degree.
I hope that this zine makes someone else’s life a bit easier going through grad school. I hope that the zine becomes a useful resource that gets passed around. I hope that it provides practical knowledge about how to get through each stage of grad school (esp. in the humanities). To that end, please feel free to share it with anyone you know who it might benefit.
You can read and download my zine by clicking the blue button above, or by heading on over to my newly updated website (so fresh!). I am so happy to finally be able to share this with you!
Higgins and Girlie went to the dog park this weekend. Higgie boy decided that this would be a perfect time to roll in the sand, stand under tree sap, and drool all over himself. Hence, bath time.
We think he resembles Jolteon when he is wet. Thoughts?
That’s all for this week! Please let me know what you think of the zine, and please share it with anyone you think it would benefit!
