Scattered opportunities to take photos today. Of note in this set:
+ One group who calls themselves “The Troublemakers” (which they are!) is wearing t-shirts that all feature a quote from me — my motto (inspired by something I read from Janet Burroway): “Only trouble is interesting!”) Very sweet to see this! What a fun — and interesting — group.
+ I’ve long heard rumors of an adjunct (not from our program) that sneaks a greyhound dog with her into classes on campus. I think I found the culprit. The dog is cute, but it should get off my couch!
+ The students holding ipads all got these for free as part of the Technology Initiative at Seton Hill. It was VERY hard to run a ‘mandatory’ class on critiquing after they had just received these playful devices, as you can imagine.
Overall, had a great day talking shop with colleagues, analyzing Jo Nesbo’s fantastically depraved serial kiiller mystery, The Snowman (watch this trailer!) and discussing cultural theory with the students (who were very eager to defend popular fiction as legitmate, literary fiction…and of course, I agree!
