Contemplation

September 11, 2011

The sky in Atlanta this morning is a clear vivid blue - the kind of sky that will always remind me of the days and weeks after 9/11, when it seemed that the attack on the Twin Towers had triggered some weird natural response. There was no rain, there were no clouds. The only airplane trails in the sky belonged to the fighter planes circling Manhattan. I could see them out of my office on the 13th floor of the HBO building facing the East River.  more "Contemplation"

Still juggling

September 4, 2011

As a follow-up to the last post, which was devoted primarily to prioritizing the good things that are happening to me, I thought I might write about how I approach prioritizing. I am intrigued by the many different approaches to time management, and while I always advocate the learning of this skill to my students I realize that it is not possible to impose time management methods upon anyone. We're all just too different.  more "Still juggling"

Prioritizing priorities

August 28, 2011

I find myself in a place where I am overwhelmed with good things. My article on A Game at Chess has been accepted by ROMARD for their December 2011 issue. I've been asked to submit an essay to the NTRMS volume on REED. I'm chairing three panels at RSA on Digital Pedagogy and Early Modern Studies. I'm chairing the DHSI 2012 colloquium as well as co-teaching a DHSI course on Digital Pedagogy. I continue to work on imageMAT. I'm working on proposals to edit Henry VIII for ISE and reinforce the connections between the Tarlton Project and REED. This on top of teaching three sections of London City Comedy and an independent study course with two students that ties into the AFI database project. Plus all the Brittain Fellow responsibilities. Not to mention trying to prepare for the job market.  more "Prioritizing priorities"
