First, an update on "Tease," below. I'm going to start volunteering as a contributing editor on Research & Academia for BlogHer. Even though my plate this winter and spring is pretty full, I'm really excited about this new opportunity, as I'm addicted to academic blogs and I believe strongly in BlogHer's mission. I'll be posting two or three times weekly, so if you come across any interesting academic blogs by women (and I read many of them, but not every day) or with content about women in academia, I'd love to hear about them.
Second, I haven't blogged about this, but one of my dissertation committee members—with whom I had a difficult time getting together anyway—left the university, so I've been hunting for a replacement. Today I landed a replacement in the form of a terrific history professor. I understand she's a tough reader, but I really like her as a person and I'm looking forward to working with her.
All right. . . Lucas is fussing. Must feed him and put him to bed.
