Hey, @IRSnews: Why do all your phone lines say you’re closed today?

I’d laugh but I fear it would end in tears.

Really looking forward to this! https://twitter.com/lnakamur/status/981196317551661057

Hooray! Congratulations @sherah1918 and @NEH_ODH — this is fabulous news for all of us! https://twitter.com/sherah1918/status/981605912799600641

Huge, huge congratulations, Devoney! Such a well-deserved honor!

Delighted to be at U-M Digital Studies today, talking about #generousthinking and working in public. Their stickers speak to me #dsumich

I’m honored to have been elected the incoming vice president of @achdotorg and thrilled to get to work with such an amazing group on the exec and in the membership. https://twitter.com/achdotorg/status/983702447221862400

Indeed! Looking forward to working with you all!

Woo hoo!!!

An important thread on so many levels: the brokenness of the contemporary academy, the importance of investment in public education, the role of public intellectuals. Congrats and best wishes on this move, @katiefitzpat $$though I’ll be sorry not to see my name twin at MLA$$. https://twitter.com/katiefitzpat/status/984609594243723266

I recognize the focus is on the bottle, but all I can see is that the person in the background is OUTDOORS in SHORT SLEEVES.

Weird yellow… something… coming from the sky…

NOT OKAY.

Congratulations, all! This is very exciting.

It’s a mic drop kinda morning: “for the love of all that’s good and holy, please stop going to the MLA convention to conduct first-round job interviews.” —MLA executive director, @PaulaKrebs. http://insidehighered.com/advice/2018/04/19/head-modern-language-assocation-explains-why-she-prefers-skype-over-convention

I was delighted to have this chance to chat! #OpenAccess https://twitter.com/jeroenson/status/987004608546557952

What's new? A little virtual move, and hopefully more to come. http://kfitz.info/whats-new/

Why, thank you! <3

Oof, no kidding! Not when there are so many other sites demanding to be built.

Sooooo glad to be back. I even updated my Feedly follows yesterday!

The forward-thinking ancestors knew what was what, ‘round about 2005.

There are chunks that are hard going, being circa 2002 cultural studies, but by that chapter on nonprofits, I am pretty much interpellated.

I would love to know the answer to this $$both the originating question and the directory bit$$ if you uncover one!

I have only gotten to scratch the surface of things here, but boy does this look amazing! https://twitter.com/electricarchaeo/status/988415182958354432

I am trying SO HARD to imagine a perspective from which this appeared to be a good idea, but am only coming up with the most ungenerous possibilities. https://twitter.com/melissa_hubbard/status/988511927562272770

I think that’s what “zero-time” implies: paid at zero percent of an FTE.

I have rarely been this sorry to be right about something. “Volunteer adjuncts”!!!

So many ways I identify. Especially with the mortified silence. But 70% of white women and 80% of black women means we *have to* talk about this. https://medium.com/s/unrulybodies/the-body-plagued-by-little-bloodsuckers-8666b31e2d37

Oh yes, absolutely. In the midst of reading I did check to see when my next appointment is.

Ooh, thanks!

Continuing to think with Miranda Joseph, this time about the strategic possibilities for “community.” https://kfitz.info/strategy-and-solidarity/

Yes! That would be great!

Now that’s a going-away present! Carry that with you, @micahvandegrift. https://twitter.com/micahvandegrift/status/989192197445750784

In the process of revising Generous Thinking, and thinking about the strategic potential of “community” for reimagining the university. http://kfitz.info/strategy-and-solidarity/

Something is happening. I vaguely remember this but cannot place it.

Huge congratulations, @LBMcGrath! Super excited to see what you do! https://twitter.com/LBMcGrath/status/989583669106020352

RT @DHandLib: POST: Kathleen Fitzpatrick on Open Scholarship, Humanities Commons, and more http://acrl.ala.org/dh/2018/04/26/post-kathleen-fi…commons-and-more/

This is utter genius, and so important. I’ve hesitated to do the same thing, but am now contemplating my own list. Thanks for sharing!

Every. Friday.

The morning I walked into my gym and thought, oh hey, Steve Earle on an elliptical machine. I have never fully gotten the phrase out of my head. https://twitter.com/johnmoe/status/990013756381032448

I mean, periodically, apropos of nothing, “Steve Earle on an elliptical machine.”
