[personal profile] ithiliana posted a link to an interesting blog post at Tenured Radical, which had a link to another post that generated some pretty heated discussion. I thought both of them raised some very interesting points (understand, I'm pretty unhappy with my grad school experience and wish I'd received more honesty and less spin at certain points).

Anyway, I thought these provide some interesting fodder for discussion. What do you all think? Do you agree with any of this? Do you think it applies to fields other than the humanities and how?

There is much more in the posts, including explanations of each of the ideas I quoted. I'm really curious what other people think.

P.S. [personal profile] ajnabieh, would you be comfortable with community members being able to add tags? Right now it's set so we can't.
