Holiday parties are a great way to remind you how replaceable you are. Take coworkers who were friendly the day before: The untenured actively ignore you, newly tenured purposely insult you, and full professors just can’t be bothered talking with you. Adjuncts eventually get herded like cattle into a little circle in the corner. Who …
