An academic's opinions on feminism, politics, literature, philosophy, teaching, academia, and a lot more.

One-half of Dual

I stared and stared at this sentence, trying to figure out what it means:

Are you one-half of a dual-career academic couple?

It sounds like it might mean “are your spouse and you academics?” Or not. 

God, I’m happy I’m not this fellow’s student. Imagine a whole lecture delivered in this jargon.
