for Brittany: Can you explain more on community resilience?
Dr. Kiessling what was your favorite part of getting a Ph.D. in Global & Sociocultural Studies?
What are some good connections to have when looking for a career in your field?
Hello Farzana, How does Data Science Bias and Artificial Intelligence relate in Cognitive Testing
Dr. Kiessling I also have some background in environmental studies, I wanted to know if you hand any advice for students trying to pursue a career in Environmental studies with an anthropological background ?
For qualitative research how much quality needs to be given in order to determine whether or not its worth anything of value? Or would that apply for quantitative research?
For everyone: How much time/and partnership did it take to construct the framework of your research?
“Interdisciplinary” means that it combines different fields of study such as Biology and Anthropology. GSS combines anthropology, geography and sociology. Often you have to major only one.
I wanted to add another response to Gidelis's question. If you're interested in an environmental anthropology career another suggestion is to gain experience through internships. I had several internships at environmental non-profit organizations. That really gave me great work experience I could put on my resume.
Thank you !
This was a great panel! I have another appointment at 4pm, so I have to go. Thank you for your time!
For Emily: During your fieldwork, how were you able to submerge yourself into poverty life style?
“Applied” anthropology or sociology means that you use your training to address real world problems and not necessarily just work in a university teaching students!
People who work in “applied” work generally report behind more satisfied with their careers than those who work as professors in universities!
One of the issues people often raise about working in academia is a lack of work-life balance, I'm wondering if the speakers could address this aspect of their work as well.
“Adjunct” means a professor who teaches courses but does not have a full-time position as a professor
Good to hear from our graduates working in the applied careers. Got to go. Bye
