Nine moments of academic Schadenfreude.
We interrupt this inadvertent hiatus to bring you a movie! Mrs Philocrites took great delight in showing me nine short films parodying academic job interviews for freshly minted literature PhDs at the Modern Language Association's annual convention. If your path has led you through the valley of the shadow of Humanities anytime in the last couple of decades, these clips will probably make you laugh, too — especially if you are, as one of Mrs Philocrites' classmates puts it, "pomo-phobic."
P.S. I may reemerge from being swamped with work soon. Or maybe not!
