I Shudder to Think What Lower Education Looks Like

I'm sure glad Oklahoma politicians enacted $300 million in "revenue enhancements" this session, because I would have hated to see this position go unfilled:
Gender and Women's Studies at Oklahoma State University invites applications for a visiting fellow finishing her or his dissertation in gender studies for the academic year 2010-11. ... The fellow will teach 2 core courses (Feminist Theories and Introduction to Gender Studies) and 2 topics classes in the candidate's area of expertise. ... Gender and Women's Studies at Oklahoma State University is a small program devoted to expanding horizons for women, LGBTQ individuals, and people of color in Oklahoma and has an interdisciplinary curriculum. Applicants from the humanities or social sciences should demonstrate research and teaching interests in the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, and cultural difference. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the OSU academic community through research and teaching. The duration of the award is nine months and the fellowship stipend is $20,000. We also offer a private office, personal computer, and a $500 travel allowance.
But lest you fear there's any moral confusion at our institutions of higher learning, rest assured that "OSU-Stillwater is a tobacco-free campus."
