At Prof Hacker: Simplifying Tenure

Just wanted to mention that I have a new post up on Prof. Hacker about simplifying tenure. It features a killer Pearls Before Swine comic as well.

I am packing my (quixotic) library. Yes I am.

One of the great pleasures of working in an dissertation study for more than three years was that it gave me a lot of time to browse the stacks when going to/from the study in the morning or evening or while taking a break from my exquisite prose. The result of my perambulations was inevitably that I would thumb across one or more volume that was unrelated to my research but that spoke to another interest. I would cart these books back to my study, thinking that I would find time during a lunch break or at some undefined point in the future to leaf through them.

Now that I’m moving from one institution to another, I find myself with an office full of books to be returned. Some are certainly related to my research (every book by Virilio that our library owned, plus much of its Hemingwayiana). But many of the volumes fall into the category of the books that I fantasized I would have time to read. Some of them did indeed get read in part; yet most did not. This, then, is a makeshift and incomplete memorial to these books (as well as a handy list to return to in the future, should I ever find some time).
