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.

Guidance needed for a book project

A colleague and I have what we think is a very exciting idea for a collection of edited essays, and we'd like any general advice you might have on:

1) Seeking submissions from other scholars
2) Targeting appropriate publishers
3) Writing the book proposal.

I can't give you information about the book's topic, because that would pretty much be a dead giveaway as to who I am if this project actually does get published. But I'm hoping that keeping my request fairly general means that any responses you give me also will be useful to others contemplating a similar project.
