I am planning on revamping my main page into an academic blog of sorts, sharing ideas about research I’m interested in, its implications, and things I’ve found on Twitter and other venues that need more than 140 characters to explicate. My goals for this enterprise are to engage more in the academic blogosphere and Twittersphere, hone my research program, and, as I discovered via my first encounter on Twitter, learn more about my strengths and weaknesses as a research and emergent scholar in the field of English Education and Educational Linguistics. Hopefully this will not be as short-lived as the poetry project of last year. Looking forward to make connections.
I am now on Twitter. You can follow me here: @hoosierphd. My tweeting will mainly focus on academic issues, education, linguistics, a select few political concerns (mostly education-related), and, as Gee would put it, events from my “lifeworld.” I’m looking forward to joining the Twittersphere and engaging in the conversation.
