Headed back into the office tomorrow, briefly at least, for a couple of meetings. It has been a most delightful break. Aside from a quick trip south to see some family, DAYS ON END in which I didn’t dress remotely like a grownup.

I worked a lot! Got a surprise new class planned, wrote a conference presentation and two letters of support, and read a ton. But all from the comfort of my house, encased in warm stretchy fabrics.

Replying to @hkpmcgregor and @martin_eve

I’m extremely interested in this conversation. I’ve wondered recently how a network like @humcommons might provide a space for such alternatives — but even more importantly, how we can get scholars to commit to participating in it.

Replying to @hkpmcgregor and @martin_eve

We could, for instance, create a conference group and have scholars share papers with that group, but I’d think we’d want a robust mode of discussion. Not live chat, perhaps, but a commitment to participating in threaded responses…

Replying to @hkpmcgregor and @martin_eve

That’s absolutely right. There’s also the danger that often crops up when a face-to-face conference is in your own town: local requirements can often make it hard to keep the occasion a priority.

I like this idea as well! I’d be happy to work on this.

I was watching you engage with a bunch of folx arguing with you about whether somebody should pay something they considered rent or not and kind of marveled at your ability to maintain. I will now assume that was Sudafed in action.

Ha! A solid example of me mouthing off on the internet. Not too long after, I found myself appointed to the MLA’s program committee, and a little bit later employed by it...

I wouldn’t say it changed my mind. I think it gave me space to change the org, at least a little.

I’ve been meaning to share my Foundations of Literary Studies syllabus, and so have at last uploaded it to @humcommons: http://dx.doi.org/10.17613/yzp3-zt84. The class focuses on gender, race, and genre. And I am having the BEST time.
