Academia is a cult (I don’t agree with everything in here but there’s a lot of what people call food for thought)
What was the most influential book of the past 20 years? A bunch of scholars listed their picks. Only one book was listed twice, and that happens to be the only one I’ve read. Since this was the Chronicle of Higher Ed, though, they couldn’t be bothered to ask anybody in STEM, it seems.
Should we cite awful people? I disagree with the author.
“Community colleges don’t ask faculty to be super-researchers while also asking them to be super-teachers. Not every sector can say that. One of the sector’s strengths is its relative clarity of mission, compared to the rest of higher ed.”
Have a nice weekend (and perhaps I’ll see you at the ento meeting in Vancouver).
