It Begins Again

My second quarter of TAing has begun. Because the English building has absolutely nothing resembling an auditorium, our classes always end up in whatever building does. In this case, it was the Chemistry building.

So my morning was a bit like this:

The Tolkien reference is appropriate, given that, during section, I asked my students to read Dylan Thomas’s “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night” and, in the last five minutes of section, showed them Aragorn’s speech at the Battle of the Morannon and asked them to think about the relationship between the two.

I think I’m going to enjoy this quarter.

About

I'm a doctoral student in English Literature at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My interests lie in the field known very broadly as the Digital Humanities and I focus on reading digital books (what happens to books as they become not merely digitized, but digital) and reading books digitally (how can we use computers to learn new things about literature). In what spare time I have, I read speculative fiction, transform long strings of yarn into apparel and decor and play with my friends' dogs while eagerly awaiting the day when we move to an apartment complex that will allow us to have one.
