We Are Going to Need a Bigger Stimulus
Republicans: Worse than You Can Imagine

The Forest of Outstretched Arms Looking for Work Grows Thicker and Thicker...

Associate Dean Ananya Roy decided a year and a half ago that Berkeley's International Studies teaching programs would deliver much more in the way of education to the undergraduates at the same cost if we spent less money hiring graduate students as instructors and more money hiring post-Ph.D.'. as lecturers.

I was just looking through the lecturer applications. OMG. So many people who would be so good in the classroom, and who know so much, and would be such general assets to the Berkeley intellectual community. This has to be the worst year to apply for an academic job in America since... the Great Depression

And I think we are going to be offering them half-time jobs...
