Being In-Between: Reflecting on Time, Space and Career during the Tenure Application Process
Eichler, Mathew
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v27 n2 p42-46 Spr 2015
Part of the process of becoming a tenured faculty member is applying for tenure. This reflective essay reports on the period after the submission of tenure materials for review but before the review process for tenure is completed. This is an "in-between" space, where the race of the tenure track is no longer present, but the role of senior faculty is not yet accorded. Indeed, this "in-between" space is related to other in-between learning and being present in the literature. The author concludes this paper with arguing for further study and reflection on the uniqueness of this space in the career trajectory of tenure-track faculty members.
