Good or bad, or should I just take it like "Geez...Am I lucky or what?" (sarcasm)?
I just got an "invitation" to be a part of new, VERY IMPORTANT, committee, one of those where VIP are members, is very controversial, and you piss off a lot of people no matter what you do. It is supposed to last at least a year. The "invitation" went from the provost to all the future members. I took a look at them, and I am the only one who still doesn't have tenure. The rest not only have tenure, but half of them are Department Chairs.
So is this a sign that everybody assumes I will get tenure (the names were proposed by the Deans of each college) or, on the contrary, that I am being thrown to the wolves? Or I just shouldn't read much into it?
