Nonetheless, there are clearly vast deeps of inky prestige into which it would be fruitless to inquire. “We’re a good second-rate university,” pronounced still another colleague one day to me. I nodded. We both felt we knew plenty which weren’t so good. 6 How many of them resent those at their more visible counterparts? One woman reminded me that educational research conclusively demonstrates institutional prestige to be the most important single factor in securing one’s ﬁrst job. “It still wrenches my guts when I come across simpletons in the ﬁeld at Ivy League schools who got their jobs because they had an inﬂuential adviser or the right graduate degree,” wrote a man in Virginia.
The slightest sign of individual difference draws a show of force. 3 Is the reason that he is identiﬁed as “the pseudonym of a teacher at a large western university” merely because he fears for his tenure? Examples such as Danell Jones’s account of his disillusionment with Rocky Mountain College remain extremely unusual (and even here seems possible because Jones only stayed a year and got another position at the University of Denver). 28 Traveling through the Boondocks I’m reminded once again of a favorite statement by Michel Foucault: “People know what they do; they frequently know why they do what they do; but what they don’t know is what they do does” (cited in Dreyfus and Rabinow, 187).

I feared I’d misplaced the name of a certain lawyer. I wondered if I could ﬁnd the reply from the American Civil Liberties Union to my letter of inquiry. It ﬁnally had to be admitted: you simply can’t write an article entitled, “On Teaching at a Second-Rate University,” and, well, get away with it. Would I be suspended ﬁrst? I stared at the envelope and ran through in my mind all the discussion many weeks previously that my wife and I had about what to do if this should happen.
