  • Part III of the conversation about Judith Bennett’s History Matters is just getting started at Tenured Radical–come on over and join the fun.
  • And now, the best news of all:  Notorious, Ph.D., Girl Scholar and Dr. Crazy at Reassigned Time have been awarded tenure and promotion!  Yes, my pretties:  our cowgirlropeMarxist feminist takeover of higher education is nearly complete!  I’ll be giving you your final instructions soon–you’ll know it’s me when I ring twice, hang up, ring twice again, hang up again, and ring a third time because I can’t figure out this damned text messaging business.  IF U CN READ THS U R DAVID HOROWITZ.  C U L8TR, H8TR!

  1. Hey, Clio B., mad skillz is mad skillz. I have never in my life thought to myself–“I don’t want to grade this stack of papers/write this book chapter/etc., so I’m going to make a marshmallow peep diorama referencing 5 of the Smithsonian Institution museums!” It’s such a creative and energetic way to procrastinate!


  2. Hey, put me on that phone tree! How did I not know it existed? The Marxist feminist take-over conspiracy to take over the world… er, Higher Ed… left me out!


  3. Congrats to one and all.

    Not to be a wet blanket, Historiann, but Easter this year actually leans a bit on the later side. For western Christian churches, the earliest it can be is March 22 and the latest is April 25. It’s always the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon (currently designated as the first full moon after March 20).

    I guess I win the geek award for this week….


  4. Congratulations Notorious PhD & Dr. Crazy!

    Historiann, thanks for linking to the Compliment Guys! They’re hilarious and made me smile. I wish Concrete University had a couple of students who gave compliments like it’s their job.
