Centering on the experiences of contemporary college and university faculty and staff, this delightful collection of cartoons covers the real and inane issues found in the world of higher education. Married to a professor, and an occasional professor herself, Vivian Scott Hixson has firsthand experiences on which to base her cartoons.
Vivian Scott Hixson is the author of hundreds of cartoons published by the Chronicle of Higher Education. She is currently Adjunct Assistant Professor of Sociology at Michigan State University.
Using humor as her tool, Hixson points the finger at petty professors, meddling administrators, and misguided students. At the same time, however, she gently targets the major dilemmas of today's academic world. Covering topics ranging from meetings and committees to finances to grants and research, He Looks Too Happy to Be an Assistant Professor will provide much enjoyment to anyone associated with higher education.
