some of us are brave
If you read this blog, you'll know that I obsess over professionalization. Academia is a tough, competitive business, but I also want it to be efficient and a positive experience for students (buy my book - it's cheap). But there is one aspect of the academic job market that I remain uneducated about - the liberal arts colleges. I didn't attend one, few of my friends did, and IU soc doesn't place many folks in the most competitive LA colleges.
