In this conversation on our retirement podcast, our attention turns to adult learning and ongoing adult education. We talk with Dr. Nell Painter, a distinguished historian and retired professor from Princeton University, about her latest book Old in Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over (named one of Time’s Best Memoirs of 2018 So Far).
She shares her insights about her experience in returning to school for a BA and MFA in a different field, the challenges and obstacles she overcame, and what she learned about reinventing herself along the way. It’s a compelling story because of the adversity she faced along the way, from people you’d expect would be encouraging and supporting her pursuit of lifelong learning. If you’ve ever toyed with the idea of returning to school, you’ll benefit from hearing the inspiring story of her adult learning journey – and her practical advice and wisdom on how to get started on your ongoing adult education.
