spot of red

... which, just in case you can't find it, is the tiny, tiny worker's cradle on the right hand side of the right-hand, under-construction new World Trade tower ... This is the view from my hotel window (thank you, MLA) - an extra bonus alongside being in a room with a team of smart women all day, plotting an MLA session for 2015 (Vancouver!) on Women and the Gendering of the Public Intellectual.  And, of course, swapping institutional stories of various forms of The War on the Humanities - or at least the undervaluing of the same, or the inability to convince students - let alone parents, etc etc - of their value.  So we may be concocting a workshop on getting out our message(s) to our various publics, too ...


  1. ::raises hand to volunteer for workshop::

    Sounds fun!

  2. Yay! That *would* be *great*!! Things developed in various ways with Rosemary Feal sitting in, today ... but you may well hear from u!! I'll keep you posted. Hope you're flourishing??
