Weekly Digest: Video Edition (February 28, 2015)

The end of February leaves me cold and tired, but Fox’s take on how little boys are being emasculated by Disney heroines may be enough to get your blood to boil. (I still can’t figure out how to embed some videos, but I BEG you to click and watch this segment.  You won’t regret it!) […]

Weekly Digest: February 19–Swimsuit Edition

This week’s (shorter) digest comes today because on Saturday I will be at the LVAIC Women’s Studies Conference watching four Kutztown students restore my faith in humanity.

Weekly Digest: February 14: Sadness and Hope Edition

This week brought the awful news of the shooting deaths of Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha, and Razan Abu-Salha by a neighbor supposedly over a parking space.  Somehow there is some debate as to whether or not this is a hate crime.  I want you to imagine for a moment the coverage if a Muslim man […]

Advice For Conference Presenters, in which we discuss how to be a good academic citizen

Seven of my students will be presenting at conferences in the Lehigh Valley in the next month: two at the LVAIC Women’s Studies Conference, five at Lehigh University’s Literature and Social Justice Graduate Conference.  I am proud of the work they have done going through the submission and revision process, but I can tell they are […]

Weekly Digest (and musings): February 7

This week I got to go on a few field trips.  On Tuesday, I saw Nicholas Kristof and Cheryl WuDunn speak in a giant auditorium at Lehigh University to hundreds of people.  On Wednesday, I saw Walter Naegle speak in the small “Big Room” at United Friends School to fifty people.  The latter was a much better […]
