So do you remember waaaaaay back last summer, when I suddenly fell off the face of earth to go to a festive American studies conference in Australia? No? Seriously, why should you. I wouldn't remember it myself, apart from all the very happy memories which I have from said trip/the absurd neck pillow adorned with koalas which I purchased in the airport for my voyage home. (So silly, but so comfy!)
Alas, something similar is about to happen, and I am about to go radio silent until deep into next month (tears, violins) as I prepare for, and then head off to, a conference about feminist cultural activism in sunny York, England. A fortunate being--I most certainly am one.
And if you recall (and again, why should you--I only recall because this is my feed store, so I'm responsible for remembering all the stuff about the, um, feed), I'll be presenting about feminists who blog about pop culture--such excitement! It's never too late to fill out my festive questionnaire, and/or to contact me directly (at firstname.lastname@example.org) with any and all thoughts about this project... if you have musings about feminist pop culture blogging... my, but I should like to hear them!
In the meantime... I shall surely miss you gravely! When we return, however, we shall happily return in style--we have sooooo much fun stuff to tackle, including one of my very favorite episodes of all time, in which abortion is actually discussed in a quasi-plausible, grown-up way, as if it were something experienced by one-third of American women, and as such a legitimate topic for discussion! Will wonders never cease???
