I’ll be heading back east to visit family and friends in December. And yes, I’ll be in Philadelphia for the annual meeting of the Modern Language Association at the same time as many of the folks who read this blog. I’d be happy to meet as many of you as want to get together at this annual shin-dig. Last year, I met up with Chuck and Kathleen in the hotel bar (and I met Steven Shaviro briefly).
This year there seem to be many more likely-to-attend-MLA bloggers who are aware of each other. With that in mind, I’ve taken the liberty of creating MLA Bloggers. If you’d like to contribute, send me an email.
Also, let’s all write to the organizers of the MLA to ask them to put the entire conference program online, so that misrepresentations of the work we do will not be quite so easy to get away with. What the heck, let’s all write MLA President Robert Scholes.

The Academic Job Interview Revisited,” by Mary Dillon Johnson (via Prof Grrrrl).
I should be there as part of an interviewing team.
But – I believe we have met before. At MLA New York in the hotel bar, with common friends Keely and Steve. Correct me if I’m wrong (I may be), but I’m pretty sure it was you.
Oh yeah! That was you? New York was kind of a blur to me.
