Two weeks down! For some of us (i.e. me) this week was the first week of instruction for the fall. So if you survived, congratulations!
Aside from surviving, how did you do re your goals for the week? What are you going to tackle in the week to come? Let us know in the comments!
And since this week marks the fifth anniversary of the death of David Foster Wallace, one of my very favorite writers, here’s Salon‘s list of five DFW quotes “on life and other things.” It’s probably not a good idea as a historian to idolize a maximalist who famously included a hundred pages of endnotes (some of which have footnotes!) in his magnum opus, but I guess that’s why they made post-tenure projects.
