      Beneath the Ivory Tower is a solid thematic contribution to the field of historical archaeology [which] illustrates, many times over, that historical archaeology is far more that a ‘handmaiden to history’ and has the potential to represent contribution of the field both to the public and behind the gates of the ivory tower itself. “Ivory Tower” review: An earnest, agenda-heavy documentary that tries to cover every aspect of the crisis in American higher education and nearly drowns in a sea of topics and talking heads.

    The Ivory Tower - 35 Princes Street, Cork n/a - Rated based on 65 Reviews "Not worth it! The place is nice, but not clean at all. The food is nothing /5(65).   Directed by Andrew Rossi. With Elizabeth Armstrong, Richard Arum, Jamshed Bharucha, David Boone. A documentary that questions the cost -- and value -- 7/10(K).

    Expanding on his controversial Atlantic Monthly essay, “Professor X” assails the ill-considered optimism that encourages unprepared students to assume crippling debt to get college degrees they don’t really need. The author is an adjunct English instructor—tenure, no insurance, no benefits and no status—who teaches basic college courses on a part-time basis.   He is a bit wicked, this Professor X. His book-length expansion of the article, “In the Basement of the Ivory Tower,” is rippled with mellow sarcasm.
