Get a real job.



This just in:

Fewer postings for theology/religious studies positions

A new study from the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature found that there are fewer jobs being posted for college professors in theology and religious studies than there were prior to the economy tanking in 2008. The number of postings in 2009 was down 46 percent from the previous year across American higher education. In addition, the data show that fewer of the positions that are being offered are tenure track. In 2008, 82 percent of the positions offered were tenure track, but that number dropped to 51 percent in 2009 and 61 percent in 2010. - Source
 
Now maybe former pole dancers can just stay home and learn to cook and raise their kids...

What?

  1. Wait, they dance when they take polls? How does that work when they do phone polls? There were no dancers at my polling station.

    1. I too was confused as to whether "poll dancer" was trademarked Terry Nelson humor or an honest misspelling. Never know around here ...

  2. My friend, a college theology professor, just returned from the SBL conference in Chicago today. I'll be sure to rub his nose in this news. :)

  3. I did a quick search to see who the AAR-SBL is and immediately came across this:
    http://www.clgs.org/aar-sbl

    A site with a number of interesting subjects such as the "Jewish queer sexual ethics project?"

    It's nice to know some good has come from the downturn in the economy.

    1. I know nothing about the symbolism or the artist - I just loved the image however. Everytime I post this people have many questions.

    I love the painting. It's so freaky. If it were a cartoon, I'd watch it and record the episodes for my future children.
