Reasearch Bleg

24 April, 2009

Research Bleg

Um … D’oh!

You know how sometimes, you write a paper abstract, and then put it away till a couple of weeks before the conference, only to find it’s not exactly what you remembered saying you’d write?

Or does that only happen to me?

Anyway, I spent part of the day googling references for an upcoming paper, and midway through, realised that actually, I’d only been googling for a tangential part of the paper. Oops.

I have a fantastic blogroll here, and am planning on mining it. But if you can think of people not on that blogroll who are pseudonymous bloggers with a voice that you think of as a legitimate academic voice (and I’m all for a wide range of academic voices), please shoot their urls my way.

I’m as interested in blogs by grad students and contingent faculty as in blogs by full-timers. Blogs my junior people and those who are lone medieval (or other) people on their campuses are especially welcome.

    Are you only looking for English-y blogs, or medieval blogs? I’m a grad student (English, Renaissance lit) with a blog that has only recently started doing more academic sorts of things, but if you are interested… I also know a few other grad student blogs in other fields, like philosophy, if those are of interest.

    I’d like to have as many examples from medieval fields as possible, but by no means am I being exclusive. Thanks!

    Welp, I’m slooooowllly blogging my way through my accumulated research on early MA (focus on the Burgundians). Can be found here

    Speaking of blegs, I hope you’ll come back to CT and explain your remark about Power: since I’m not in the field, I really don’t know if the work’s considered largely reliable or creaky and old (which I suspect). I’m just shooting from the hip out there….

    How about me? I'm sorry I'll have to miss your session, but I'm chairing one at that time—so you can say anything you want about me & I'll never know.

    Dame E — you’re on my list, and I hope to see you at the meetup!
