BES (my student from a long time ago, whom some of you might remember) passed her PhD comps with flying colors 🙂 Only the dissertation awaits!
If you shall be at MLA this year, you can meet her, as she shall be my roomie and I am going to drag her around to social occasions (mentoring, yo).
Also, if you’re going to MLA… stay to the bitter end as Dr. Crazy is on a presidential theme panel that is scheduled for the last session on the last day. I know, we all like to leave asap. But perhaps this shall entice you to extend your stay until the end of the convention.
