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
