The Post-Tenure-Review Blues
Reeves, Thomas C.
Academic Questions, v17 n4 p63-67 Mar 2004
Damp Valley U granted Jeff tenure after six years. Then, four years later, he found himself sweating through a post-tenure interrogation. The damning charges: uttering the word "foreman," involvement with a men's group, failure to note that 50 percent of cowgirls were black. Thomas Reeves enumerates the punishment meted out to his white male protagonist in yet another tragically plausible send-up of American higher education.
