One more thing that makes it harder for adjuncts to get jobs: job ads that are specifically crafted towards the one person the university already plans to hire.

I actually think this is a lot more honest and a preferable way of going about things. In this case, it feels like a kick in the teeth because the guy is so accomplished, but it’s transparent and keeps people from wasting their time sending in useless applications. I also, in general, believe in hiring adjuncts internally or locally, because it is an particular kind of meritocracy-above-all BS to SCOUR THE COUNTRY and make somebody move 3,000 miles for a job that pays freakin’ $18,000 a year, when you have perfectly qualified candidates for the job living right across the street.

A More Pragmatic Klan Rally

mallelis:

"White supremacy!" 

"I think that’s definitely a part of our eventual vision, but it’s a bit up-in-the-clouds for our user base. Let’s be a little more realistic." 

"White power!" 

"I love that enthusiasm. Is there a way we can see that tempered with some real-world logistics?” 

"White competence!" 

"Let’s start with that."

Right now, children’s literature is seeing an intense flare-up in the ongoing conversation about the diversity crisis in children’s books. While this conversation has been going on for decades, now social media has given the people having it megaphones, and they are using them to brilliant ends….

Trigger Warnings and the Novelist’s Mind

newyorker:

imageJay Caspian Kang on how trigger warnings might affect the creative process: http://nyr.kr/1hdzXfc

“A writer friend of mine once likened a completed novel to a pressure cooker—the weight placed on every stylistic decision should be extraordinary and evenly distributed. A trigger warning or, really, any sort of preface, would disrupt the creation of those highly pressurized, vital moments in literature that shock a reader into a higher consciousness.”

I kind of lost it in the comments section. But come on! Why do so many people who write about this subject refuse to make even the tiniest bit of intellectual effort?

Call it “Downton Abbey” syndrome: The newest trend among the world’ s ultra-rich is to have a butler. But what type of person would willingly give over his life to serving the outrageously moneyed?

I mean, me, if they paid me enough? And probably most people?  ”What kind of a person would accept a job that probably pays pretty well and most likely isn’t all that demanding, especially compared to, like, coal mining?” What kind of a question is that? The kind of question only an outrageously moneyed person would ask.
