He Looks Too Happy to be an Assistant Professor

Centering on the experiences of contemporary college and university faculty and staff, this delightful collection of cartoons covers the real and inane issues found in the world of higher education. Married to a professor, and an occasional professor herself, Vivian Scott Hixson has firsthand experiences on which to base her cartoons. Using humor as her tool, Hixson points the finger at petty professors, meddling administrators, and misguided students. At the same time, however, she gently targets the major dilemmas of today's academic world. Covering topics ranging from meetings and committees to finances to grants and research, He Looks Too Happy to Be an Assistant Professor will provide much enjoyment to anyone associated with higher education.

They Look Too Happy to Be Temporary Adjunct Assistant Professors

Described as "brilliantly perceptive" "on-target humor", they have often appeared in The earlier cartoons were re-published as a collection, He Looks Too Happy to Be an Assistant Professor, by the University of Missouri Press in 1995.

They Look Too Happy to Be Temporary Adjunct Assistant Professors

WHY, after all those years in graduate school, and the scholarships granted by my more hopeful advisors, did I turn out so many cartoons, and so few contributions to social science research? ANSWER: If you show someone your serious research, you will get back pages and pages of advice as to how you could and should revise it. This will happen even if that someone likes what you have produced. In contrast, if you show someone a cartoon, and he/she likes it, you will get a laugh. And if the recipient thinks the cartoon is pointless crap, you will never know. The psychological advantages are obvious. WHAT are the cartoons good for? ANSWER: with luck, comic relief. And,as in the case of the first collection, they can be used to lighten the mood of a commitee meeting, focus a discussion, or make a textbook more appealing. For those who have some such purpose in mind, the cartoons have been arranged in specific categories. (See "A Quick Guide to the Cartoons".) WHO should get credit for inspiring these cartoons? ANSWER: almost everybody I've ever called a friend, but especially William B. Hixson,Jr., Professor of History at Michigan State University, my husband/companion for many, many years. Thank you all!

An Assistant Professor

Dedicated to R. K. Narayan 15 Years After His Death A timeless search for personal identity where the various kinds of love penetrate one another in unexpected ways Following in the footsteps of his literary hero, India’s R. K. Narayan, the protagonist and assistant professor, Thomas Sleiman, explores the relationship among the different kinds of loves in the heady context of a search for personal identity. Erotic, divine, and familial loves all compete and complement one another in the life of Thomas, who is not the regular literary gangster, or the predictable member of a community of deviant dilettante. . .as the conclusion, with all of its mysticism, genuine affection, respect for the “dead” Narayan, and devotion to the beloved, clearly testifies. - Anthony Aookeregbe In An Assistant Professor Salam skillfully combines postmodern and traditional perspectives to create a profound, moving, and sometimes disturbing vision of a life and career spanning ethnic, geographical, moral, and ideological boundaries. . .As he surveys the wreckage of the postmodern world, Salam’s carefully situated narrative is enriched by reflections on the literary work of Narayan and Graham Greene as well as on a shelf-full of contemporary poets, philosophers, and theologians. . .One is left in the end puzzling over whose voice is heard when the main character protests that “I don't live to write nor do I write to live. I am just an Assistant Professor, professing mostly my ignorance of things that most everyone else thinks are obvious. For some mysterious reason, I have been compelled lately to write a book, which I want people to read." They will not be disappointed. - Meister Richard Woods, O.P.

Changing Church

Through the fascinating stories of pioneering ministers, this book reveals a unique picture of progressive changes occurring in the Christian tradition. Meeting challenges and overcoming obstacles, these twelve diverse ministers are changing the church as they take prophetic stands on gender, race, interfaith cooperation, ecology, sexual orientation, economic opportunity, and other social justice issues. Believing in the power of sacred symbolism to shape social reality and to provide a foundation for justice and freedom for all people, these ministers lead worship with inclusive language and imagery for humanity and divinity. They include multicultural female and male images of the Divine. Their stories affirm the connection between this expansive theology and an ethic of justice and equality in human relationships. In working from within to change the church, these ministers have risked censure by denominational authorities, loss of opportunities for promotion to larger congregations or to prestigious denominational positions, and even loss of their jobs. They have found creative ways to balance advocating for change and working to support the church, using their positions as ordained clergy to bring liberating change to the church and the wider culture.

Peter s Revenge

Peter’s Revenge is a story of love and betrayal, which focuses on an old man, Kurt, a respected but ruthless art historian, who feels compelled to justify his obsessive desire for Laura, the wife of his best friend Peter. He will do anything to be with her, even to the point of jeopardizing his friendship with Peter. But when Peter and Laura have children, the situation becomes even more unsettling, and more unscrupulous. Kurt and Laura become lovers, partly because of the revolting hypersexuality of Peter, but also because Kurt was able to woo her with his encyclopedic knowledge of Europe’s medieval sculptures and its history, as well as his love for music, all of which speak powerfully to her artistic mind. It cannot end well. Peter’s children will take care of that. Peter’s Revenge is a thriller with atmosphere and tension up to the final page.

Power and Knowledge in Southeast Asia

Examining two state-sponsored history writing projects in Indonesia and the Philippines in the 1970s, this book illuminates the contents and contexts of the two projects and, more importantly, provides a nuanced characterization of the relationship between embodiments of power (state, dictators, government officials) and knowledge (intellectuals, historians, history). Known respectively as Sejarah Nasional Indonesia (SNI) and the Tadhana project, these projects were initiated by the Suharto and Marcos authoritarian regimes against the backdrop of rising and competing nationalisms, as well as the regimes’ efforts at political consolidation. The dialectics between actors and the politico-academic contexts determine whether scholarship and politics would clash, mutually support, or co-exist parallel with one another. Rather than one side manipulating or co-opting the other, this study shows the mutual need or partnership between scholars and political actors in these projects. This book proposes the need to embrace rather than deny or transcend the entwined power/knowledge if the idea is for scholarship to realize its truly progressive visions. Analyzing the dynamics of state–scholar relations in the two countries, the book will be of interest to academics in the fields on Southeast Asian history and politics, nationalism, historiography, intellectual history, postocolonial studies, cultural studies, and the sociology of knowledge.

Time of Departure

Florida state prosecutor Claire Talbot is as tough as they come, and not everyone loves her for it. Newly promoted Felony Division Chief, Claire has about as many jealous detractors as she does supporters. Some colleagues are openly skeptical about her youth, her abilities, and even her gender. When a highway project construction crew unearths two skeletons in a common grave, Claire reopens an investigation into a string of abductions that took place before she was born. While researching the file, she meets retired cop Marc Hastings, who once worked on the case. He maneuvers his way into the investigation-and into Claire's life. Marc has an uncanny familiarity with Claire's habits, and she begins to realize that not all is as it seems. The detective urges Claire on, mysteriously convinced that only she can solve the case. Together, they unearth more graves. But then, disaster strikes ... and Claire finally discovers what Hastings knew all along. It's a secret almost too shocking for a sane mind to grasp. The key to the killings may lie deep in Claire's own past. But what if Claire's past lies in her future? Full of spellbinding twists, Douglas Schofield's Time of Departure will appeal not only to thriller aficionados, but to readers who appreciate a strong female lead and a compelling love story. A page-turner that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, Time of Departure heralds the arrival of an immensely talented new crime novelist.
