Given the stopping of the whole city yesterday–where most of us didn’t have electric–we will have the meeting today at the Peter Easton. Brian happened to give a great paper at the Pub during the blizzard on Thursday, and I expect a lot of that conversation to continue. From Gil Shalev:
I am updating the syllabi (especially the secondary resources), but I have two courses this semester, one on time (and later its relation to politics) at the undergraduate level, and another on Derrida at the 4th year/postgraduate level. The latter will focus on Derrida’s relation to metaphysics, in particular on time, which means that the former course is very much in tandem with the latter, and will lead to a colloquium paper to be presented at MUN in the last week of the semester on Derrida’s “Metaphysics.”
though the original analysis of the point in Forbes was sloppy, but the resulting “controversy” tells us more about how little tenure-stream faculty know about what other jobs in the capitalist system are like than about the stresses of being a professor. The crucial facts are that tenure-stream faculty have considerable autonomy and considerable control over when and where they work, even if they are working fifty hours or more per week. The same can not be said for lawyers, most doctors, office workers, business men and women of all stripes, and so on.
Reading the comments thread was dispiriting.
