01:19 pm - Sometimes, going into campus early pays off
--History response paper for tomorrow written and emailed (something i usually end up doing at 10pm on Monday).
--English book-review book finished. Making notes on it now. If i'm a good do-bee, i can likely get the entire review written this evening.
--What looks to be a very important article as secondary source material for my Hali Meidhad paper printed out for scribbling on, since it's quite technical. Ditto with an article that will hopefully explain to me in more detail what "Deictic Shift Theory" is, which i need to get to understand the former article. xaiax, you're a linguist; what's Deixis exactly?
--Going 90% on the fly for the class i have to teach tomorrow. Intro, show part of a film, short discussion. I think i'm familiar enough with the issues in the novel and the film version, as well as teaching film in general, that i don't need to come up with formal discussion questions. Besides, they're a talkative bunch.
--Now. Hali paper to actually write and then cut down. Will satisfy an incomplete and be my May conference paper.
--50 minute History lecture about the lives of religious women in the middle ages to plan out (and learn how to do!).
--Much shorter English paper to write for this term. The book-review book i read was on women's preaching and made some points about the beauty of some of the virgins assisting with the eloquence of their speeches and their audience's reception of them. I'm pondering trying to see if i can go anywhere with the notion that the virgin martyrs' tormentors mutilated them precisely because of a perceived connection between their appearance and people's willingness to listen. Have to run this by my Awesome Advisor though.
