Disparate institutions find a common core curriculum reaps significant benefits (essay)
As a result, a core curriculum provides curricular coherence and cultivates a sense of belonging to an intellectual community. ... The benefits that flow from a liberal arts core experience are especially significant for those students whom higher education has historically failed. Course requirements are unambiguous to students: no digging through an overwhelming catalog of options that may or may not fulfill vague graduation requirements. Students have a more academically cohesive and “career-aware” experience that makes the value proposition of staying in college clearer.

Conference speakers say the liberal arts must return to a purer form to survive [St. John's]
Agresto said that much humanities instruction has been co-opted by hyperspecialization and especially by critical theory. He said overly-critical approaches at once demean the subject matter and limit students’ free inquiry.

Columbia Professor Takes On Overhaul of Core Curriculum
"The core curriculum is always evolving and it has to evolve," Montas said. "Perhaps a better way of putting it is that the core curriculum is not a tradition of thought but a tradition of debate."

A construção deste blog foi motivada pela “quase-completa” ausência no Brasil de debates, pesquisas, colóquios, seminários, teses, dissertações, artigos etc. sobre as desigualdades de Gênero na Arquitetura, Urbanismo e no Planejamento Urbano – ou no chamados Estudos Urbanos. “Quase-completa” porque sabemos que há iniciativas isoladas que não estão mobilizadas coletivamente a fim de ganhar força no mundo acadêmico. Por esta razão, gostaríamos que este blog fosse um instrumento de mobilização e de encontro, de troca de informações.

ok so let’s talk a bit about jobs vs passion. my last fulltime job was at a big game development studio; the kind of job you’re (supposedly) passionate about. most of my colleagues adored the games we made, and so they didn’t care that the company had a major diversity problem, that our salaries were below average, that we didn’t get overtime compensation yet stayed ‘til 11PM more often than what’s

Where Does the Time Go? – Words In Space
In recent months I’ve met with a number of advisees and freshly-PhD’d job candidates and junior scholars who’ve wanted to talk about the day-to-day responsibilities of a faculty member. I will humbly admit that I’m (apparently) seen as someone who’s fairly productive, and who puts a lot of energy into her teaching — and these folks want to know how I structure my time. Quite a few of our conversations end with some variation on this theme: “Wow, they sure don’t tell you that in graduate school” — “that” meaning the amount of time dedicated to things other than the romanticized “life of the mind,” as well as the number of competing demands for one’s time and attention. [Others have attempted to quantify and itemize professors’ labor: see this 2014 Boise State study; this 2016 THE survey of various studies; and this list from the American Association of University Professors. And plenty of scholars, from Karen Gregory to Mel Gregg, have critiqued labor in the academy.]
