Apologies for the long absence–I’m in L.A. and will be defending that pesky dissertation on May 8, then graduating on May 10. Plenty to say about the weirdness and goodness that surrounds those activities, and will get those thoughts down soon. For now I’ll take suggestions for a new name for my blog, given that as of May 10 I will, technically, no longer be a grad student. Adventures in the Office? Adventures in Academic Limboland?
