Back in the olden days of 2006, I was applying for tenure-track jobs. I spent every available minute on those applications: anxiously revising my letter of application or preparing talking-points for the campus visit. (“Oh yes, I’d walk over hot coals to teach Old English homilies…”)
I also made time to create this web site — which looks like a blog, but actually isn’t. It’s a glorified CV/teaching dossier/Tumblr-esque compilation of thoughts, syllabi, quotations, and images. Reading it now I see the online persona I was projecting, as someday I will when I read through this WordPress archive.
