Professor Sarikakis will address the dilemmas of modern day established and aspiring academics who are faced with the dictate of ‘publish or perish’ and ’teach or publish’ and will add one more dimension, that of impact or research and teaching in society. It will discuss possibilities for connection through personal examples and reflections on ways in which aspiring faculty may empower themselves away from restricting narratives based on artificial and unethical dilemmas.
