My promotion to Professor isn’t official yet, but I’ve already received an invitation to review someone else’s materials for promotion to Professor.
Given all of the extremely nice things I’ve heard that my outside reviewers said about my latest book and career overall, I suppose it’s time to pay it forward. I thought I’d get at least a year’s grace! I thought I’d have to have changed my faculty profile page, but maybe good news travels nearly as fast as bad news.
(I’m pretty sure that it was one of my referees who sent in my name as a potential reviewer.)
p.s. Regular blogging will resume now that the semester is over. This year seems to have inflicted more than the usual level of brain damage on me–I blame contemporary politics and the relentless spread of the Human Stain across our nation, but things seem to be falling apart on a number of levels these days. I hope this summer will give us all a necessary break from at least local frustrations. Peace, friends, and enjoy the loveliest month of the year!
