The stuff of academic life

What not to do on your sabbatical – and then how to get it together – here.

This cartoon (via Ben on FB) on getting a PhD in the humanities is amusing and disturbing in just about equal measure.

Interesting analysis of what is happening in British Higher Education here, along with a comparison to the US system.

And then just in case it was all getting a bit serious, at Foucault News, Clare points us to the Philosophy is Dangerous range of t-shirts and mugs. She’s right about the Foucault one – a quote would have been better – but some of the others are very funny. Rorty, Erasmus and More are good – but can you imagine walking down the street in the Nietzsche one?
