Yes, we are a minority in the industry, and so what? We should get together and pat each other on the back for that?
reminds me of those men conferences where they meet in the woods and get half naked and drum
The men's movement! Whatever happened to those guys? Robert Bly is still alive.
I haven't been to my professional conference (AWP) in three years. I actually miss them; they are loads of fun. Booze + writers = mayhem. Higher ed conferences are much more likely to induce eyeball stabbing. Do we really need another panel on connecting to students on social media? NO THANKS.
