That was a rough five weeks…

I took a summer anatomy course. During the semester, it requires between 12 and 17 hours a week, over 15 weeks. The department compressed fifteen weeks into five. Therefore, it required between 36 and 51 hours a week this past term. I spent so much time studying, I would end the day staring at the wall, my brain overworked.

However, the end of the term has occurred. I got out with a C+. Am I happy? No. Must I deal with it? Yes.

Now, I am on to other things. My goals for the month of June are the following: read A Tale of Two Cities, start Hebrew lessons again, learn one piece on piano, and start exercising again (now that I do not have to spend all day studying). The exercise one will be interesting. I have been injured since March and I am not completely over the injury. We’re working around it until we work through it!

CALL FOR PAPERS

Boston University
Graduate Program in Religion Student Association
Presents a Virtual Conference:

RELIGION AND THE FUTURE

Conference Date: Sunday, October 18, 2020
Keynote Speaker: Sylvester Johnson, Director, Virginia Tech Center for Humanities

Just as the religious gaze into the past for holy histories, divine guidance, and ritual instruction, so too do they yearn for the future to inspire hope, bring peace, or inaugurate apocalypse. The future forces reckoning with technological change and adaptation to environmental catastrophe. The future heals through recognition of the past in sacred narratives of hard-won victories and traumatizing loss. How do the religious figure the future? How does the study of religion account for the future as a chronological moment, a container of dreams, a companion to the past, a harbinger of doom, or a beacon of hope?

Boston University’s Graduate Program in Religion Student Association (GPRSA) is pleased to announce a virtual Graduate Student Conference on “Religion and the Future.” We invite papers from many disciplinary and theoretical perspectives and welcome creative and provocative presentations that open up new avenues of inquiry. For more information, contact Chad Moore at cdmoore@bu.edu.

Note on COVID-19 Impact: Considering how COVID-19 will continue to impact public health, economic stability, institutional access, travel restrictions, and  research possibilities well into the fall, the BU GPRSA Conference Committee has proactively decided to make this year’s graduate conference on religion a virtual one. The conference will be personable, engaging, and fun, so we hope you’ll join us!

Please submit a CV and a 300-word abstract by June 15, 2020 to BUreligionconference@gmail.com .

Possible Topics Include:

The Future of Religion & Religious Studies: How does one study the future of religion? Is religious resurgence the rule or the exception? What pedagogical approaches does religious studies need in an age of digital humanities?

Rituals & Robotics: Does technology contaminate or enhance religious symbols, rituals, or experiences? Can artificial intelligence be religious? What do virtual and physical religious spaces share?

Utopias & Dystopias: From catastrophes to paradises, how do people imagine future societies? What do people hope for or dread? How are these hopes and fears related to, bound up in, or separate from religious belief, practice, and experiences?

Dreams, Visions, & Prophecies: Religious literature employs revelation to shape sacred stories, make a place for divine agency, and imagine idealized and alternative futures. How do religions of the past and present deploy such visions as part of their religiosity?

Apocalypses & Eschatons: How do religions conceive of the end of the world? Do technological or scientific eschatologies relate to traditional religious notions of the end? How do religions utilize narratives to envision or predict the future?

Ecological Futures: How does climate change threaten religious communities, sacred sites, and shared practices? How do religious traditions engage with the potential loss of a viable future for humanity on Earth?

guys…. i almost changed my english major over to a STEM major because i felt everybody would be more proud of me. i’m genuinely so passionate about english and literature and ik pursuing a degree in it would be good for my mental health and for directing me to a job i actually enjoy. please just give me motivation to keep pursuing english. i said i wouldn’t give into the whole “majoring in english is a waste of time” ideology but it’s starting to freak me out

i just want all my books to be perfectly annotated without lifting a finger. like… i want to read a line, think a thought along the lines of ‘’oh wow yeah, her aggression while she defends herself portrays her deep rooted anger that stems from feelings of inadequacy and insecurity that developed due to her mother’s negligence.’’ and i want it to show up, neatly, in the margin in the colour that i’m thinking of using… all the android vs. apple nonsense and wireless charging and i still have to use my hands to write in my physical books. disgusting

The Intruder - 1962 by Roger Corman.

It is adapted from a 1959 novel by Charles Beaumont. The story depicts the machinations of a racist named Adam Cramer (portrayed by Shatner), who arrives in the fictitious small Southern town of Caxton in order to incite white townspeople to racial violence against black townspeople and court-ordered school integration.

2020 Quarantine Challenge: Week 4

The key to history is memorization, analysis, and critical thinking. Keep neat, organized notes(i reccommend adding dates and/or pictures to keep track of the time period). Do your readings(when necessary) but don’t just take the facts at face value. Make sure you understand the “why,” “how,” and the significance just as much as the “what” and “when.” And never be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

When I tell people I have degrees in classics, archaeology and museum studies some of the reactions I get are:

-OMG so you’re like Indiana Jones? -Classics? As in classic literature, like the Scarlett Letter? (another variation is asking if I mean classical music). -Have you read The Secret History (and I know they don’t mean Procopius)? Are classicists still so elitist and cult-ish? -I wanted to be an archaeologist as a kid. -So you, like, read Greek? -Can you recite Homer? -Can you speak Latin? -Have you ever found human bones? -What’s the coolest thing you’ve found? -So you want to work in a museum? -You can make money selling stuff, like at a gallery or auction house. -WhAt CAN yoU DO wIth YoUr dEgrEes?

Pickup Lines

- Are you an archaeologist? because I’ve got a bone I’d like you to examine. - You’re the real life Lara Croft. - Archaeologists are all about dating, right? - I dig you. - If I could re-arrange the Greek Alphabet I’d put Upsilon and Iota together. - Something about their labyrinth, or sword. - Calling me Helen, Aphrodite, or any Greek goddess/mythological persona they’re familiar with.
