Invisible Adjunct

by Jeremy Blachman

Courtesy of Volokh, this article about The Invisible Adjunct, an adjunct professor with what apparently is a very cool website, although I haven't read it (yet), so I'm just trusting the archives. She just shuttered it last month after deciding to leave academia. The article implies that if she only revealed who she was it might help her get a job but she thinks it'd be seen as a negative. Obviously, (1) having not read the site, and (2) having no idea how academic hiring works, I have no idea. But interesting article that, like it did for me, may get you to want to read the site, if you haven't been reading all along.

Adjuncts aren't real professors so I wouldn't call it academia. That's not to disparage adjuncts, but the reality is it certainly isn't even a significant source of income (from what I've been told) more like a hobby or just giving something back to the profession. Good adjuncts are hard to find, bad ones are a dime a dozen.
