Ph.D. Chats

Just had an excellent lunch with my colleague Helena Michie to talk about the nineteenth-century dissertations happening at Rice. And last week I had about eight hours of talks with my existing Ph.D. students at UC Davis. All seem to be thriving in their different ways. I have students in Performance Studies, English and Comp. Lit. It's very very interesting and inspiring to work with them, and I feel like I'm at the best point in my career to be doing so--both in terms of what I can bring to the table by way of advice, and in terms of my relative lack of professional necessity: nothing is pushing me.
