16, 36, 43 for the university asks!

16. What is your weird academic niche?

such a good question!! i’m really interested in the intersections between books, the people who make them, and the institutions that house them. for example, we tend to think of authors as the sole actor that shapes how a book is thought about and perceived. but how do printers shape the way a text looks and therefore is read? and how does the way a library store a text shape how it’s accessed and understood throughout time? i study this in the particular context of early modern english texts.

36. How did your attitude towards studying and school change between high school and university?

hmmm it’s definitely gotten more focused, but also more chill? in high school i wanted to be the best at EVERYTHING, and now i only want to be the best at my specific stuff

43. What is your plan B career?

being a park ranger. gonna disappear into the woods and never return

University asks!! 9, 14, 22 Have a wonderful day!!!

ty, you too!! <3

9. What’s the most important thing you have learned about yourself at university?

i think i’ve learned a lot about why i want to do the work i want to do, and how it aligns with my values. i really value the work that goes into organizing knowledge, for example, and how such organizations shape our understandings of the world around us, which leads to my scholarly interest in the history of classification systems. 

14. What is your favourite professor like?

my favorite professor is eerily similar to chris traeger from parks and rec lol 

22. What is your favourite course style?

a regular old sorcratic seminar. ya girl loves to talk

Some one said: “The dead writers are remote from us because we know so much more than they did.”
Precisely, and they are that which we know.
