This does not have much to do with our reading per se, but I think y’all will hopefully appreciate it anyway. I found this blog on the Chronicle of Higher Ed about alt-ac careers–a topic about which I have been curious for a while: http://chronicle.com/blognetwork/researchcentered/2013/08/08/advice-for-aspiring-alt-acs/. The first post gives advice to aspiring alt-acs. Though I am not sure I know more about what alt-ac careers are after reading this, it at least made me feel better about not knowing, explaining that serendipity and chance often play a big role in alt-ac jobs, and that the parameters of what constitutes alt-ac are not rigid or even particularly well-defined. Hope y’all enjoy!
