Historiann discusses “the pleasures and perils” of academic feminist blogging. Her post is based on a recent talk she gave at the University of Texas in Austin’s Symposium on Gender, History, and Sexuality.
Her talk/post focuses on four questions:
1. Is blogging a waste of time or dangerous to one’s career?
2. Why did Historiann call dead historian Lawrence Stone a “complete tool?”
3. Can blogs be spaces for airing out the “dirty laundry?”
4. Why does her feminist blog include pictures of sexy cowgirls?
Check out her answers to these questions here.
Thanks for the links, John. What do you think?
