So, I got myself a blog to celebrate making it through grad school, 'cos all the cool untenured female academics seem to have one these days, and I wanted to comment on other people's blogs without seeming creepy. I'm not really sure what's going to go in it, but I thought I'd introduce myself as best I can. (I'm trying to keep this sort of anonymous, although I've failed miserably at every attempt I've ever made to remain anonymous on the Internet before, so I don't know if it will last.)
I'm female. I study Renaissance drama. I've just finished a Ph.D. in English at a school that will henceforth be known as the University of Basketball. Starting in August, I'm going to be a visiting assistant professor at a small liberal arts college that hasn't got a nickname yet. I like playing bridge and Trivial Pursuit, but I'm lousy at chess. I am waiting impatiently for the release of the seventh Harry Potter book and the fifth installment in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. I've been to some interesting places over the years, including Alaska, New Zealand, and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and I want to go to Istanbul before I get too much older. I might blog about some or all of these things, or possibly about other things. Anyway, feel free to read and comment.
