About the talk

Schillace will discuss building a unique career path as a scholar.

She earned her PhD in 2009, and followed the usual steps of applying for and getting a tenure track appointment. That should have been the end of the story. But in 2012, she turned in her resignation and embarked on a journey into an alternative, if unpredictable, career.
