1 December 2011

@hastacscholars Hey, GaGa can be critical, too... :) #hastac2011

I propose the skill of, the practice of, the work of #teaching as #alt-ac #hastac2011

Another discourse for #alt-ac is "quality of life" #hastac2011

Might we track #alt-ac as the instrumentalization of "real skills" that "do" "something" that is "marketable" and "sellable"? #hastac2011

I'm certain #alt-ac jobs can & do replicate the same challenges, asymmetries, idiosyncrasies, even violences of tenured academia #hastac2011

Thank you to @jean_bauer for volunteering her #alt-ac job materials (and considerable qualifications) #hastac2011

Julie Klein: "Offset detail by hyperlinking to CV, portfolio, webpage, work in the cover letter." #alt-ac #hastac2011

@briancroxall says #alt-ac does not necessarily mean #digitalhumanities #hastac2011

#alt-ac cover letter is not a faculty job cover letter, select what is relevant to the job call, foreground your #alt-ac skills #hastac2011

It's funny that I am in a room full of digital humanities people reading a sample cover letter off a big screen in silence #hastac2011

@briancroxall "Understanding how the university works, how large bureaucracies work is a real skill" #alt-ac #hastac2011

Agree w/ diversifying what it means to "do" academia, we have the privilege & mobility to even entertain an idea of the #alt-ac #HASTAC2011

Noticing a peculiar strain of melancholia? mourning? nostalgia? running through these #alt-ac conversations #HASTAC2011

@amcvittie Just introduced to the definition of "Michigan Time" (about 10-15 minutes late)... #HASTAC2011

@amcvittie It's bright blonde... even in the cold, I will go hatless... say hi especially if you're attending the #HASTAC2011 conference

Room is filling for the #alt-ac #HASTAC2011 pre-conference workshop on "Alternative Academic Careers" / distracted by the smell of food

To continue my conference tradition, have located 2 gay bars in walking distance of hotel #HASTAC2011 diversions
