This Job Market Season, Interview More Adjuncts
Vitae
Most tenure-track and tenured faculty have tremendous empathy for the plight of adjuncts. Aside from a few "lifeboaters" here and there, the prevailing attitude in the academy is a self-aware and very correct "there but for the grace of [favorite deity], go I." But when it comes to concrete measures to improve academic labor conditions, many ladder faculty still feel, and not without reason, like their hands are tied.

Science and Art Meet, Unveiling Mystery and Cultural Tragedy
Inside Science
In the last decade, art conservators—the people who protect and preserve works of art—have begun practicing complicated science. Now they can tell more stories of the secret lives of artists, the chemistry behind great works, and why many of the most famous masterpieces no longer look anything like they did when they were painted. They also discovered that one form of paint may reduce great works of modern and Impressionist art into white canvases with smudges.

The Forever Professors
Chronicle of Higher Education
The 1994 law ending mandatory retirement at age 70 for university professors substantially mitigated the problem of age discrimination within universities. But out of this law a vexing new problem has emerged: a graying—yea, whitening—professoriate. The law, which allows tenured faculty members to teach as long as they want, means professors are increasingly delaying retirement past age 70 or even choosing not to retire at all.

Ageism in Academe
Chronicle of Higher Education
Senior faculty. It sounds like an honorific. It isn't. It's more a sort of stigmata. Being called "senior faculty" stigmatizes you. I'm called "senior faculty" quite a lot. I have been teaching journalism for thirty-three years, twenty-nine at the same college. My career in academe, begun with innocent hopes and fearsome ambitions, is nearing its obvious end. I expect to be bid farewell in the style to which I have been made accustomed.
