It's difficult to find employment otherwise. Not entirely sure what the rub is here. [/quote]I know a lot of folks in social scien...

[quote]Fair, but that's an extreme minority of the academics in the field. Any kind of educational pursuit that doesn't actually add productive value to humanity is going to be difficult to get a gig in - unless, of course, you can be used as a token or have the right friends and connections.
