More on grad/junior faculty relations. via Sharleen Mondal : One thing I don't understand is how junior faculty (who I assume are hired in large part because of their critical thinking skills) can justify cruelty to grad students by stating that they're just treating grad students how they were treated as a grad student. Hearing this “logic” next to perhaps the same person's essay on how we should challenge marginalizing discourses within systems of power seems…well, you get the idea.

nice exchange over on topic exchange about the role of professors in relation to grad students and in the end it is about heirarchy in the professoriate.
