Wow. It would never have occurred to me that working on an anthology isn’t work, but maybe that’s because I’m at a community college and don’t have the research burden on me (i.e. since I’m not required to produce “original” scholarship).
But you’re right. We need to break these cycles. After all, don’t we believe that the reading we assign to our students is part of the *work* of the course? We sure aren’t happy if they don’t do it. And who’s to say watching L&O in your underwear isn’t in some way part of the process? (I know, you are going to give me shit about *my* inconsistencies ;-))
