The Lore and Lure of the Academic Job Market
A special session. Presiding: Leonard Cassuto, Fordham Univ., Lincoln Center
Speakers: Lynn Arner, Brock Univ.; Sandra K. Baringer, Univ. of California, Riverside; Tim Cassedy, Southern Methodist Univ.; Carrie Johnston, Bucknell Univ.; Robert Simon, Kennesaw State Univ.
Panelists consider how discipline-specific “lore” continually lures graduate students and contingent and full-time faculty members into an already overcrowded job market. Instead of providing advice about getting a job, participants evaluate that advice and generate discussion about how it upholds common practices in graduate programs and academic departments.
