Ever since Collin called my attention to the horrid time the MLA assigned the "Meet the Bloggers" panel, I've had a number of MLA-related posts hopping around my head. I waited to release them 'til today because:
- I've been busily replying to the scandalous number of emails Gmail squirreled away.
- The Silas Weir Mitchell chapter is sloppy step from a T.K.O.
- The program for MLA 2006 hadn't made it to California yet.
As I've nearly dispatched the first two items and the PMLA Fairy finally arrived, the reality of my impending talk is settling in and I need your help.
Boon companions will remember that my talk's titled "The New Interdisciplinary." Thing is, I'd love to pepper it with important sounding numbers suggestive of my readership's disciplinary and professional diversity. I would love it if you could leave a comment—anonymous is fine—telling me your discipline (if you're an academic) or profession (if you're a human being).* I'd appreciate regular commenters piping up too, as that'll make the counting all the easier.
* This includes all the good people who surprised me with their knowledge of Official Kaufman Arcana last night. (About which, more later.)
