A humanities professor, a historian, junior faculty, female, a mac user….I’ll add my other identities as I decide to break them out. This is surely the most un-academic academic life blog.
For the things I blog about, scroll down past twitter and the blogroll for a category listing (or jump to the very bottom of the page).
About my posting name (which is “dance”, depending on the template it may or may not show).
My current avatar is a shot of Hayden Valley in Yellowstone. Before that, it was some characters from the font Wingdings. The old spiky black avatar was Gust from a set of Mac OS X icons designed by Jamie McCanless.
JPU is “Jumbo Public University”, where I did a fellowship once. I’m currently at a college that doesn’t offer or require a good pseudonym.
I originally set up this blog in June 2006, but did not really start blogging consistently until March 2007.
