Lot of news-worthy stuff happened this weekend, but I’ll keep it down to two pieces. 😀
First of all, my proposal for the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) has been accepted. So what does this mean? This means that in March, I will be flying to Louisville in order to give a 30 minute presentation on the complications of unaccredited educational sites, particularly on how it challenges the conventional sense of authority that is apparent in a classroom environment. CCCC is the world’s largest conference about research and composition. So what does THAT mean? I’ll be presenting with Professors, Ph.D.s, and many other truly awesome people. For those of you who are curious, I plan on exploring pedagogical authority and how it functions in the blogosphere. I don’t want to give too much away before the presentation, but yeah–awesome stuff.
Also, Rudolph from the gaming blog Grinding to Valhalla has been interviewing bloggers who are also “gamers,” and recently interviewed me. There’s some pretty fun stuff in there and you’ll be able to see a side of me that you don’t normally get to see on (un)Enlightened English–my inner-gamer girl! I’ll be sure to post a link when the interview goes up, but you should definitely check out some of the other great interviews that are there.
I’m terribly sorry about the lack of blogging as of late. I’ll be honest–I’m uninspired. Sometimes you just hit this little “funk” that’s hard to get out of. Feel free to give me post suggestions–you never know, maybe your idea will be the one to get me out of my funk!
