Who's Hot, Who's Not

At Crooked Timber the analysis is finally presented.

SillyWife is in languages, and in my day I was in math. This all seems right.
Though maybe the main message is a tough one:
academic disciplines are, without exception, more ‘not’ than ‘hot.’ When adjusted positive and negative hotness scores are totted up against each other, no discipline does better than – 0.062 (Languages).
