In The News

I get lots of hits from my links to the Chronicle of Higher Education, a publication which I value and respect, so I hope they don't take this wrong. But unless they take a different tack soon, they might want to change the title of their "Chronicle Careers -- On Hiring" page to -- "On Firing".

How odd that you (and the CHE, I suppose) should post this today: Last night, I dreamed that I got fired from my TT job. Not for anything that I'd done or not done, mind you, but rather because of budgetary problems at my university. I opened my paycheck receipt, and typed in there (along with only 25% of my pay!) was a note saying that my position had been determined to be "impacted," and so I was fired, effective immediately.

And yes, I'm a hair's breadth away from both tenure and book contract, so you'd think that I wouldn't be having such dreams anymore. But you'd be wrong.
