Ancrene Wiseass

A would-be medievalist holds forth on academia, teaching, gender politics, blogging, pop culture, critters, and whatever else comes her way.

Yes, this really is yet another blog by a disillusioned grad student. I sympathize, but that's just the way it has to be. For hints as to what my bizarre alias means, click here and here and, if needed, here and here. To get a sense of what I'm up to, feel free to check out the sections called "Toward a Wiseass Creed" and "Showings: Some Introductory Wiseassery" in my main blog's left-hand sidebar. Please be aware that spamming, harassing, or otherwise obnoxious comments will be deleted and traced.

Welcome to my new blog location. I'd like to open this new web address with some kind of whiz-bang inaugural post that would cause my site statistics to go through the roof and set the comments section a-reeling. But it's not gonna happen today. Today, because I'm verrrry grumpy, I'm just gonna do some therapeutic web-site housekeeping.

For now, welcome. I hope this will manage to be a new and improved version of Ancrene Wiseass in more than just technical aspects. Tactful suggestions about formatting and mood-altering substances are welcome, as always.
