The Fall 2008 issue of Macalester Today, my alma mater's award-winning alumni magazine, is out at last. You may recall that late last spring, I received notice that the magazine had accepted for publication an essay I'd written, about reconciling an elite education, an ambitious career path, and a modern-day notion of feminism with a 180-degree turn into stay-at-home-motherhood. I titled my essay, "Mama, Ph.D.," and subtitled it, "Can a Mac grad embrace stay-at-home-motherhood and still call herself a feminist?" (The subtitle got cut, but my answer is yes.)
I received my copy of the magazine's new issue in the mail last week, and honestly, I could not be prouder to be published there.
Unfortunately, the magazine does not regularly produce complete online issues, so I don't have a link to my published essay for you. But check back here again soon for more details and I'll hook you up, dear online readers.
In the meantime: So! Excited!
