hen I imagine the future of graduate school, I envision large cohorts of students finishing their Ph. D. s in four or five years. They would decide what part of the country they preferred to live in and would field multiple offers from colleges and universities there. Then they would go off and live happily ever after as professors. The Elysium I just described lasted for about one generation, funded by the Cold War and stocked by huge numbers of students enticed to college by the GI Bill and new federal student-loan programs. It ended in the 1970s. We’ve been emptying the stores ever since, waiting and hoping to recover that lost time of plenty. But the scales have fallen from our eyes in recent years, so it’s a good time to think about what the future might really hold for graduate school. As a freshman, I remember proclaiming more than once that I would never, ever go to graduate school. But you don’t need to be a futurist to prognosticate about graduate school. It’s actually better to be a geologist because the changes in graduate school are typically measured in geological time. Higher education has always changed slowly, and that’s not a bad thing. But graduate school changes slowly even by academic standards. Today graduate school is gripped in a vise. One jaw of that vise is the ever-tightening academic job market, and the other jaw is the increasing corporatization of the academy.
Bethany Murphy grew up in a trailer park outside Rochester, New York. Her father was Jewish, her mother Catholic. “The Jesus statues creeped me out,” Murphy says. Her mother—the gentile—explained that Jews were “people of the book. ” Bethany, then seven, loved books. ” Bethany spat in her face. Her mother did the job of teaching her about Judaism. At Rutgers, Bethany minored in Jewish studies. Many of her friends were Orthodox, the most observant Jews. Because Bethany’s last name was Murphy, everyone figured she had taken her father’s name and her mother was Jewish. It wasn’t until Bethany traveled to Israel that it hit home. Back in the US, Bethany sought out Orthodox rabbis willing to oversee her conversion—something many refuse to do. She heard about a rabbi in Washington. On November 9, 2009, Bethany sent the rabbi an e-mail. The recipient of Bethany’s e-mail was Bernard “Barry” Freundel, rabbi of Kesher Israel, a synagogue at the corner of 28th and N streets in Georgetown. Kesher’s nondescript building belies its place in the local Jewish.
The field where the 2015 Frederick Douglass High School Mighty Ducks football team plays has a scoreboard, but no lights, and a lined turf, but no trainers or Gatorade jugs filled with water on the sideline. To the left of the field is Baltimore’s Mondawmin Mall, where National Guard tanks sat for nearly a week last spring after Freddie Gray, 25, was arrested a little more than a mile from the Douglass campus. His death from injuries sustained while in police custody led to protests around the city and helped fuel the #BlackLivesMatter movement. A crowd of nearly 100, many initially assumed to be Douglass students, clashed with police at Mondawmin, a three-level shopping mall next to a transit center serving 10 different bus lines. Douglass was closed the next day. To the right of the field, the skyline of the central business district bisects the field goal uprights. Banners along the field’s fence read “Work Hard. A police helicopter circles from the back of the school, around Mondawmin and toward downtown, just as it does a few times each day, just because. Three players show up on the field for practice with white helmets instead of orange — “Did you not get the memo. ” an assistant coach asks — and the team lines up in rows on the turf for stretches. ” because even here, on a field in west Baltimore among players born in the late ’90s, wrestling’s Ric Flair still made his mark.
