Go Ye Mama PhDs!

Caroline Grant, coeditor of the forthcoming anthology Mama, PhD: Women Write about Motherhood and Academic Life, just gave me the heads up that is launching a new Mama PhD blog, and seven of the book's contributors -- Libby Gruner, Megan Kajitani, Susan Bassow, Dana Campbell, Liz Stockwell, Anjalee Nadkarni and Della Fenster -- will be blogging regularly for them. As Caroline notes, "This is a terrific opportunity to bring the discussion of academic work/ family life balance issues out of the book, into the blogosphere and from there into classrooms and campus administrative offices." Hells yeah.

Megan, of the very cool blog Having Enough, will be writing a weekly advice column. For more on everything, check out the book's website here. And congrats, you Mama PhD powerhouses out there! I'll be sure to blog more about the book in this space when it comes out.
