The only problem with refocusing this blog on my research is that, of late, I’m not doing any, as, well, it’s November. This week, I have a set of project outlines and a set of term paper proposals to comment on, and then a series of small administrative things that need to get written: the copy to be used in publicizing the symposium I’m organizing for next semester; a proposal for a symposium for next academic year; a course description for spring; a speaker introduction. And then I need to sit myself down and write my MLA presentation. I’m going to do some portion of the drafting here, as Miriam began some time back. So with any luck, this space should play host to what appears to be actual writing in the very near future.
