Department of English Professor Stephen Watt discusses academic publishing at the 15th Annual Preparing Future Faculty Graduate Student Conference held at the IMU on Friday, Feb. 19, 2010.
This one day conference, open to all IUB graduate students, regardless of discipline, addresses the professional steps necessary for future faculty. The PFF is funded by the University Graduate School, and is organized by Sociology graduate students and their advisers.
Indiana University’s 17th Annual Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Graduate Conference is a one-day event designed to provide graduate students from all disciplines and at all phases of their educations with important information about preparing for their future academic careers. The conference consists of four sessions addressing issues, such as graduate student concerns as they progress toward the Ph.D., building a professional record, navigating the job market, acclimating to a new faculty position, and professional opportunities within and outside of academia. Each year the conference is organized by a committee of graduate students, lead by a PFF fellow who is appointed and funded by the Sociology department and the University Graduate School.

Funding for the conference is provided by the Graduate School and other participating departments. Panelists are typically professors from IUB and surrounding universities. Special care is made to invite panelists from a diverse array of disciplines and institutions.
