Visiting Professorships

What does it mean to be a "visiting" assistant professor? Who invented this rather cruel form of professional limbo? Why are more and more junior scholars beginning — and ending — their academic careers as visiting faculty members?

  1. I've seen visiting profs treated awfully, and I'm not too keen on trying to join them.

    Thanks for the raffle book! It arrived today. It's pretty awesome to get a book just for commenting.

    Btw, it may be hard for those in China to comment on your blog (blogspot is blocked, so no access w/o a VPN), but the posts still show up in Google Reader, etc.
