Know what academic freedom is? Or what it's come to mean? What's
affirmative about affirmative action these days? Think you're up on
the problem of sexual harassment on campus? Or know how much the
university depends on part-time faculty? Academic Keywords is a
witty, informed, and sometimes merciless assessment of today's
campus, an increasingly corporatized institution that may have
bitten off more than its administration is ready to chew. Cary
Nelson and Steve Watt use the format of a dictionary to present
stories and reflections on some of the most pressing issues
affecting higher education in America. From the haphazard treatment
of graduate students to the use and abuse of faculty (as well as
abuses commited by faculty), Nelson and Watt present a compelling
and, at times, enraging report on the state of the campus.
