Graduation was this weekend and meetings about next year start tomorrow. Since next year starts tomorrow, we will remember to write our own job descriptions and not volunteer. I have of course just agreed to chair a really onerous committee for the next two years, so I am not qualified to speak on this matter — although I believe everything will be fine.
The advice in these posts from Tenured Radical and Historiann is really good and really deep. I learned it in graduate school, of course, but what I did not learn was how to apply it in non-R1 situations. You have to do more — but when are you, despite all appearances, falling into the traps TR and H describe?
Once we stopped everything to build program. The theory was that without some structure, we were unable to control our days and would lose research time to having no research atmosphere. We were lost anyway, so we would build for the next generation. It did work, although the sacrifice was the one foreseen. Perhaps things would have worked out on their own.
