- What it is like to be an adjunct
- What it is like to be in a tenure-track position
- What it is like to be a female grad student in philosophy
Accordingly, I would like to propose a new series, "What is it like?", for our community members to post on. In addition to official contributors, I would be happy to accept reader-submissions. The only rule is that the essays/postings must be consistent with the "safe and supportive" aims of the blog. Explaining what is hard about "being X" is fine and encouraged. However, to keep things safe and supportive, accusatory types of things -- it's hard to be an X because Y's are jerks! -- will not be approved.
I hope to kick things off with a post entitled, "What is it like to be a VAP?" That is, unless someone else beats me to it! ;)
