"The Last Professors" an interview
InsideHigherEd.com has a interview with Frank Donoghue about his book “The Last Professor.” While the interview sounds a rather pessimistic (realistic?) view of the future of tenor, the meat of the discussion–alluded to but not explored–is in the “the casualization of the teaching workforce”–which I would have liked way more discussion about.
What is interesting about the article is that the bulk of the comments focused on the role and nature of tenor, much, I think, to the dismissal of the larger forces at work.
I think I have more to say, but just not yet.
