A Little (Self-)Promotion

As I’ve mentioned around here a few times, I’ve been in the midst of a review this spring, and now that the results are official, I can finally say out loud and in public that, as of July 1, I’ll be a full professor.

Needless to say, I’m happy with the outcome, but a little dazed by it, too. I’m not sure where the last twelve years have gone, exactly, but they seem to have gone well. (I’m hoping against hope that the next twelve will go more slowly, but I’m not exactly holding my breath on that one.)

Anyhow, I’ve got a lot of thoughts stemming from the review, and I’ll hope to sort out that jumble and be able to write about some of what I’ve learned soon.

In the meantime, yay!


  1. Congratulations! Not only have you earned the promotion for yourself, you’ve also given the DH community reason for optimism.

  2. big big yay! great news although not at all surprising. near as I can tell, being full prof means (almost) never having to go to any meetings you don’t like any more. “They” (whoever they are) have no more big stick (alas, there’s also not much more carrot).

  3. Hey Kathleen–that’s fantastic news! I hope to celebrate with you in person one MSA or MLA soon!!!
