Classes, Cabin Pressure, and Virginia

The Potterwatch 2013 conference was fantastic! My week hit with a mighty but not unwelcome vengeance once I returned. I'm hard at work on my Mysterious Project of Mystery at the moment.

Registration is now open for my Summer 2013 course on The Dystopian Tradition with Mythgard Institute and my Fall 2013 course ("American Exceptionalism and the Frontier") at Lenoir-Rhyne University.

American Exceptionalism and the Frontier
By exploring key romantic images of the ideal American across time -- such as Explorer, Pioneer, Highwayman/Cowboy, Policeman (of home and/or of the world), Spy, and Astronaut -- in political rhetoric, fiction, film, and music, this course will consider if the frontier really is a key ingredient to American identity and, if so, what it means, who it includes and excludes, how it is a limited and problematic image, and what “the frontier” might be in the twenty-first century.


Happy birthday to lalam and happy early birthday to silveraspen, prettybirdy979, sakuraember, muuranker, izhilzha, and justicemuffins. May all of you enjoy many happy returns of the day!

If you're a fan of Cabin Pressure, don't miss this video:



I'll leave you with Virginia's commentary about today:

I have never heard of Mythgard before. This seems relevant to some of my friends' interest.

Virginia has the right idea.

Oh, wonderful! I've been thoroughly enjoying my experience teaching for the Mythgard Institute. The students are fantastic, and the classes are designed to be very interactive if the students/auditors wish it. If your friends have any questions, please feel free to send them my way!

Virginia has the right idea.

Ha! I agree! :D
