One of our projects while we’re in San Diego, where we’ll visit with MLA-attending friends who are now spread far and wide, is to write a rock opera. This is the sort of thing that kept us sane in grad school, where we came up with a few parody songs about literary theory and three songs of a rock opera about a serial killer.
Already some collaboration has started over email. It looks promising. I’ll keep you posted, if you like.
