Post Academic

Last week on Post Academic (5/23-5/29)

Posted in Housekeeping by postacademic on May 30, 2010

At the end of one week and the beginning of another, we catch our collective breath on the blog and gather up links to some of the posts that have either cycled off the home page or might have been lost in the shuffle.  Enjoy the rest of your long weekend, and thanks for reading!

* Caroline covered last week’s New Yorker cover, which, understandably, may have hit too close (to the Post Academic parents’) home for some of us.  Arnold wrote up a Post Academic take on The New Yorker‘s “Your New College Graduate: A Parent’s Guide” questionnaire between the covers–and vote in our poll on how best to care and feed your Ph.D.!

* Caroline addresses issues of job security–or more accurately, job insecurity–for hamster-wheeling academics and hamster worlders alike.

* Caroline discusses how teachers should be treated here and here, while Arnold delves into how we feel about the way we’re treated, especially adjuncts.  A lot of this makes Arnold go Hulk!
