Reviews and Responses
In her book, Professing to Learn: Creating Tenured Lives and Careers in the American Research University, Anna Neumann presents a valid case for the importance of investigating the types of learning and work performed by professors following their promotion and tenure. She argues there are popular misconceptions regarding scholarly learning and the amount of work carried out by professors at this point in their careers. These misconceptions are pervasive not only among the general public but also among academics. To that end, she draws attention to the potential advantages this research has for professors who are about to embark upon similar paths. Additionally, Neumann points out that there is very little existing research on this topic, and explains that this project will help to fill that gap in the scholarly literature.
