I have a short blog post out at The Sociological Review. In it, I am trying to think about how to be a more organized scholar. Here is an except:
I had found myself constantly responding to issues, this time around I wanted to set and follow an agenda that anticipated developments before they arose. My thinking here is informed by the expectation that if The UWI wants its tenure track faculty to set an academic agenda, this must be matched on my end by a proactive administrative agenda that protects time to rise to the occasion.
Thanks are due to Mark Carrigan for shepherding this piece.
