Just some bits and pieces I’m reading as I work on a chapter I’ve submitted for an edited collection. The heart of it is a paper I’m resurrecting (from a conference presentation a few years ago) on the professionalization of graduate students, especially distance graduate students, and social media. Fingers crossed. Today, I’m just shoring up a few fragments that I’ve been reading recently that I’ll most likely incorporate. Trying to get back my good habits of writing every day, but that’s harder than it sounds when I cajole my students.
Anders Fagerjord on visibility as an academic. Lots of examples and links to further material here, too.
Nathaniel Rivers on scholartweeting at conferences, especially #RSA14
All of this wanders around somewhere between specialization, professionalization, and just plain behaving as a professional in the 21st c.
