It'd be funny if it were happening to someone else.
Great news, everyone who's working as an adjunct instead of as a "real" professor:Indiana Jones is one of us!
Sadly, I think he's suggesting that he's a professor and extension specialist, rather than an adjunct or VAP.
That's what you call philosophizing with a bullwhip.
Spoilsport.Indy clearly is a lecturer, teaching when the department needs him, but keeping his hands free of tenure-track shackles, so he can thwart Nazis when necessary.
Clearly he is retired at that age and teaching when he feel like it. In _Raiders_ he did have a class and huge office at the University of Chicago. That was totally TT. Now he probably has an endowed chair and is researching all the time and "teaching" part time.Come on, it's Indy!
Actually, he's one of those stars that only has to teach one class a year
Indy is the hottest emeritus professor ever.
No, I think lecturer. Junior wasn't rich, but he had a little money to keep him from T-T bondage. He was a really popular teacher, and the alumni loved him, so the department made sure that he had a nice office.
he must have gotten tenure for some of things he brought back to the museum per the holy grail movie. There has to be some institutional reward for finding and saving priceless artifacts.In the Holy Grail movie, he had a large (and obviously smitten) class, and he was only too glad to escape them by climbing out the window. Sounds like the tenure grind to me.I bet he has a section on his resume of the sort, Asses I've Kicked.
He can't be an adjunct -- he clearly has a research / travel budget and academic freedom...
PGS: earlier you mentioned that your SO was having somewhat better luck on the market this year. How have things worked out? I'm rooting for her!
Wow. I have never in my life heard tenure referred to as "the grind".
5:58Really? Do you think that once you get a TT job, life is all gumdrop-unicorns and flowerpetals?Trust me: its a grind. both pre and post tenure.
P.G.O.A.T, how are things going?
