Today’s adventure was brought to you by
- Franz Kafka’s The Trial
- a Slate article about an upcoming Franz Kafka video game
- a fine example of gallows humor in “Twelve Fixed, Eternal Commandments for Academic Job Candidates“
- a blog post about a guy who thinks the longer an adjunct successfully teaches in his department, the less qualified s/he becomes to hold a tenure-track position there (see his point 9)
- Franz Kafka’s “A Message from the Emperor” (no copyrights were violated: the original German is in the public domain, and the translation, posted again here for better legibility, is my own)
- the letter A

How else does the doorkeeper try to keep you from entering the tenure-track door? Let me know in the comments.
