Interviews (with apologies to Gertrude Stein)
Room where is the room. Where is the room. A convention. A convention an elevator a convention and an intervention. Intervene how does it intervene what are the stakes. The stakes are high and they intervene in the discourse, a very fine discourse. Where is the room in an elevator.
An intervention an intervention a convention and it intervenes it just intervenes. It intervenes and a job. A job a job and a pedagogy. The diligence is spreading.
Best of luck to all those interviewing, and a happy MLA '09 to all!
(For a more classic take, here once again is the Chaucer blogger's Margerye Kempe at the Feest of MLA.)
