The LSA and its Special interest Group on Linguistics Beyond Academia had a webinar presentation and discussion with Melissa Reitkopp, an executive recruiter in the Washington D.C. area who specializes in professionals with advanced degrees (MS/MBA and PhD/MD).
In an effort to document demographic changes in the academic linguistics community, the LSA has commissioned an annual report detailing information about job titles, students, degrees awarded, average salaries, and more. The report offers information about trends in student enrollment and employment by industry.
The LSA is a founding member of the National Humanities Alliance (NHA), a coalition of organizations that advocates for federal funding for humanities research, teaching, programming, and preservation and access. The field of linguistics is multi-dsciplinary and is informed by humanities, social science, and natural science research.
This guide is intended to be a resource for linguists who wish to pursue a proactive approach to garnering press coverage for linguistics or who may be approached by a journalist for comment in advance of a news story.
