first_img Ready for takeoff New first-generation Red Book helps bind a community An Air Force major completes his Ph.D. and becomes a new parent — all in three years “I’m a first-generation Ph.D. student, so it’s important for me to have a space like this to ask questions and share things that might make me uncomfortable in other settings. There are students who come to Harvard with a tradition of Ph.D.s in their family, so they have a certain confidence,” added Torres. “Professor Bernstein assumes that we don’t know everything, which is great in many ways, because it is difficult when you don’t know something, but don’t want to appear as if you don’t know it.”To combat fatigue and burnout, Bernstein’s students also got an education in time management and the “rhythm” of academic workflow. There was no final paper or exam for the course, but students submitted written assignments nearly every week for a cumulative grade.“The work never escalates, but it is challenging and significant,” said Bernstein. “There are no highs and lows in terms of deadlines, which is a rhythm that is most helpful when it comes time to write a dissertation. It’s important to be prompt and move with alacrity, but never to rush.”For many students, the class also offered a valuable opportunity to address issues like imposter syndrome and the anxieties associated with not knowing the unwritten rules of the academy.“Something that comes up in this class often is the acknowledgement that most people in graduate school historically were white men, and that’s especially true at Harvard,” said Caleb Shelburne ’18, a first-year Ph.D. student in the history of science. “These systems were not necessarily designed to preserve white power or patriarchy, but they do, functionally, because of who has access to the systems. A class like this that addresses those systems, makes them explicit, and critiques them.”“As each year passes, I am continually surprised by how many things we’re expected to know,” said Divya Chandramouli, a fourth-year Ph.D. student in South Asian studies. “There can be shame associated with not knowing something in graduate school, and in this class that shame is being addressed in a productive and healthy way. I hope that eventually every student in graduate school here has access to something like this.” What does an academic CV look like? Is it important to join a scholarly association? How do travel grants work?The skills and information graduate students need to succeed extend far beyond what they learn in their classes. In a new course designed and taught by Robin Bernstein and offered by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), newbies learn the “hidden curriculum” of graduate school and how to navigate the singular world of academia.“There’s no reason that anybody should be expected to know anything that they haven’t been taught,” said Bernstein, the Dillon Professor of American History and professor of African and African American Studies and of studies of women, gender, and sexuality. “Whenever a person is expected to pick up something magically, that’s a sure sign that power is working in insidious ways and a sure sign that elitism is afoot, in the case of academia. The goal of this course is to democratize the knowledge that is needed to succeed in graduate school and in academia.”Bernstein conceived of “Introduction to Graduate School: Skills and Practices for Scholarly Success” five years ago and launched the course this fall for students in the social sciences and arts and humanities. Course topics included building a professional website, applying for research grants, and reading academic material efficiently.“Graduate school is a professionalizing experience, and I’m a very practical person, so as soon as I got here, I wanted to find the class that would tell me everything I needed to know about succeeding,” said Massiel Torres, a second-year Ph.D. student in romance languages and literatures. “From our coursework in our departments, we gain knowledge to master our fields, but I also wanted to know the core of what we do as professionals. This class demystifies that process.”From reverse-engineering CVs of working professors to developing note-taking tactics for dense texts, each activity was designed to give students a roadmap to better understand the expectations. Students also compared strategies and commiserated about the issues they faced inside and outside the classroom.“The class is wonderful, and Professor Bernstein is very informative,” said Joseph Núñez, a second-year doctoral student in anthropology. “Students are open about their anxieties. Instead of this class being thought of as patching weaknesses, we understand that we’re strengthening and expanding our skills and knowledge beyond graduate school. We discuss some of the nuances associated with academic and [alternative academic] careers.” “There can be shame associated with not knowing something in graduate school, and in this class that shame is being addressed in a productive and healthy way.” — Divya Chandramouli, fourth-year Ph.D. student Authors of their own stories Related Home and economics Talia Gillis became pregnant with twins while taking on two doctoral programslast_img read more

first_imgAt least, that’s what the newspaper ‘Sport’ suggests. The Frenchman hasn’t had a good season at Barcelona, he has struggled to adapt, and he hasn’t been capable of making Barca forget about Neymar either, their greatest desire.Since the Brazilian left for PSG in the summer of 2017, Barcelona have tried actively and passively to make up for his absence, without success. Not even the breakthrough of Dembélé, nor Coutinho’s class, nor Griezmann’s good work have served for Neymar to be forgotten about.And now, like every summer, the return of the prodigal son is again being rumoured about. The difference is that now Barcelona have a player that PSG would be willing to accept as a bargaining chip: Griezmann.Read Also: Barcelona coach warned by UEFAThe inclusion of the Frenchman would undoubtedly cheapen the deal (it’s an illusion to think it’ll be man for man) and would leave Barcelona with enough money to undertake their other big summer signing: Lautaro Martínez.However, according to the aforementioned source, Griezmann has his days numbered. If PSG don’t want to do a deal with Barca, the Frenchman will still be cashed in on. They hope to get 100 million for him.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Barcelona are so eager to get Neymar back that they seem willing to sacrifice Griezmann, their most disputed signing in recent times, to achieve it.

first_img(REUTERS) – Bayern Munich crushed Arsenal 5-1 in their Champions League round of 16 first leg yesterday, scoring three goals in a dazzling 10-minute spell in the second half to extend their record to 16 consecutive home wins in the competition.Thiago Alcantara struck twice and Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and substitute Thomas Mueller were also on target as the Bavarians inflicted Arsenal’s first defeat of the season in Europe’s premier club competition.Alexis Sanchez had equalised for the visitors, scoring on the rebound after Manuel Neuer saved his 30th-minute penalty but the Gunners suffered when captain Laurent Koscielny limped off injured to leave the defence exposed.“We should score in London but it is a good starting position,” said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm, who will miss the return leg through suspension. “It should be enough for us to go through.“We played very good until the penalty and then the second half was sensational.”Robben said Bayern had proved their recovery from a recent dip in form.“If this was not an answer, then I don’t know. I am a bit surprised by the score but it is the Bayern mentality. When it matters we are always there,” Robben added.Bayern, who knocked out Arsenal at this stage of the competition in 2005, 2013 and 2014, got off to a perfect start when Robben curled an unstoppable trademark left-foot shot into the top corner of David Ospina’s goal.Arsenal levelled after being awarded a penalty for a handball by Lewandowski and Sanchez hooked home on the rebound after Neuer saved his spot-kick.The game looked to have lost its pace early in the second half before Bayern stepped on the gas to fire three goals past the English side who collapsed when Koscielny went off injured in the 49th minute.Lahm floated a perfect cross into the box and Lewandowski rose high above defender Shkodran Mustafi to drill in a header in the 53rd minute.The Poland striker set up Thiago with a perfect flick for Bayern’s third goal three minutes later and the Spaniard grabbed his second with a low drive before substitute Mueller completed the rout two minutes from time.The English team are on course for a seventh last-16 exit in a row as Bayern close on a sixth successive quarter-final appearance.The sides meet in the second leg in London on March 7.last_img read more
