English Grad Student Shaming

Recommended Posts

Hahaha. That video is highly amusing.


Yeah, my professor first showed that to me when I was thinking about Literature graduate school to pursue a tenure-track job in higher education, I suppose to make sure I got the real skinny.



Long story, short. Here I am.

It's amusing, but it's also really irritating.  Why would you embrace the "useless work" shit?  Why don't you find a political/rhetorical purpose to your writing?


Also, the idea that somehow reading the classics make an English scholar is also pretty reductionist.


Jimmies are 30% rustled.
