In the straightforward career, advancement is viewed largely as a movement
through standardized, institutionalized stages that follow a predictable
sequence. In the deviant career, it is seen as dependent upon the
negotiation of contingencies and sequence of probabilities in one’s passage
to identity. The deviant undergoes a social process of becoming defined by
the articulation of life history and social history, in which historical
conditions and the actions of other agents play crucial roles. I apply this
framework in historical sociology to narrativize my unplanned career that
formally started with Management Engineering in college; transitioning to
Social Planning in a Master’s program and Development Sociology in doctoral
studies; and eventuating in a professorship in History and a career as a
scholar and journal editor. This journey has borne fruit in
interdisciplinary research and teaching. In addition to secular theory, my
coeval journey of faith sustains another layer of meaning in my deviant
career that relies on the abiding presence of a loving God.
