Dr. Free-Ride! A huge and heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. Dr. (soon to be) Associate Professor Janet D. Stemwedel who notes over at Adventures in Ethics and Science that San Jose State University has found her meritorious of the award of Associate Professor with tenure.
I should note, BTW, that I've been awaiting the answer to a little issue Janet raised last fall.
Hey, is that a tab that says "Academic Blogging"?
Yes, it is.
My department has been quite insistent that the blogging I do here does constitute a kind of scholarly activity that ought to be recognized. They think that communicating philosophy to a wider audience is A Good Thing. So, a colleague wrote an evaluative letter about a selection of posts, and that letter and the posts are included in the dossier. I'll let you know how that goes.
I guess it went very well indeed!
