It's been awhile since my last post, but for good reason. This past Spring, I attended job interviews, accepted a new position, defended my dissertation and graduated, moved to New York state, and created a syllabus for a new class!
I'm now the Assistant Professor for Interdisciplinary and Digital Teaching and Scholarship at SUNY New Paltz, and I'm teaching a 19th Century interdisciplinary digital humanities class themed around Sherlock Holmes's London. I'm really looking forward to the semester, which starts on Monday.
My primary reason for writing this entry is bittersweet: now that I have a position as an assistant professor, I want to make my blog double as an academic portfolio, and Wordpress better suits this goal. As a result, all future posts will be at the new incarnation of "Anglophile in Academia": http://annieswafford.wordpress.com/. I hope you'll follow me there.
Thanks for reading and for your support.
