One of the challenges to posting has been the matter of content. I have plenty to say about my scholarship, but I'm in the fortunate position where I have a number of people in real life with whom I can discuss my scholarship. By the time I get to a computer, it largely feels like rehashing the same material. I could talk about my program; but though I straddle the pseudonymous line, talking about my program in any detail seems a little too far over the line. I bore myself talking about the work/academia/life balance I try to maintain (and which isn't particularly conducive to finding time to post), which leaves remarkably little worth writing about.
For now, I'll reintroduce myself. I'm an art history PhD student at Northeast Metropolis University (NMU), working full time in science administration for Scientist Boss (SB). Vellum will have to reintroduce himself, though he's posted far more recently than I have. Mercifully, I've survived the spring semester (hurrah!), and even produced a tentative dissertation topic. My desk is relieved that my research pile will soon be going back to the library or getting filed away for future use.
