In this brief episode, Toby attempts to comment on academic parenting (and fatherhood in particular) . . . while academic parenting.
His comments are drawn from Aviva Shen’s article on student perception and gender bias, Apoorva Mandavilli’s New York Times piece on representation in academia, Dale Edwin Murray’s Times Higher Education essay on the impossibility of balanced academic parenthood, and Toby Young’s tongue-in-cheek Telegraph article, “Why men don’t want it all.”
