Tomorrow (30 September), I will be presenting a paper at the MUSE conference, an undergraduate literary conference hosted by Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington. The conference is held at the Center for Natural Sciences from 8am to 5pm.

I’m in Session IV (2:30-3:45), presenting “The Great Waste Land: Sexual Normativity in Two Works of Modernism,” which is something of a reworked version of “ἐκπύρωσις: Fitzgerald, Eliot, and sexual iconoclasm,” which I presented earlier this year at my university’s annual literary conference.

Then I’m off to hang out with Abou.

    Everything went great. It’s a small conference, but there were some really interesting papers. A girl from Knox College presented a paper on a late-18th-century French pornographic novel called The Monk, and actually used the phrase—in a conversational aside to the audience—”pseudo-blowjob thing.”

    Now it’s time to update the CV
