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.

Happy Birthday, Maurice!

It's Maurice Sendak's birthday today. I'm going to celebrate by watching "Really Rosie" on DVD later this afternoon. If you want to read up on the Where the Wild things Are author, you can find an NPR interview here, as well as video excerpts and a profile from PBS's "American Masters" episode on Sendak here.
