Cascadilla Press is delighted to announce the second edition of Surviving Linguistics by Monica Macaulay. This fully updated edition contains new advice about PowerPoint presentations, conference poster sessions, citations and citation managers, funding sources, and applying for grants. There are revised and expanded sections on informed consent and human subjects, preparing to submit a journal article, and job options for linguists. Undergraduates will find guidance on preparing for grad school in linguistics, with advice on choosing, applying to, and visiting graduate programs.

Surviving Linguistics is a valuable resource for students at any stage of their graduate career, from learning to write linguistics papers through completing their dissertation and finding a job. Along the way, the author explains the process of submitting conference abstracts, speaking at conferences, publishing journal articles, writing grant applications, creating a CV, and much more. Throughout Surviving Linguistics, Macaulay emphasizes the importance of working with advisors, dissertation committees, and fellow graduate students. The second edition includes new exercises as well as helpful references to many new books and online resources.

"The new and improved second edition of Professor Macaulay's book contains a wealth of useful information, practical suggestions, and valuable resources about the field of modern linguistics. The book should be required reading for any student pursuing a graduate degree in linguistics."
--Travis G. Bradley, University of California, Davis
