I am a Ph.D. student in medieval literature and critical theory in the English Department at The Ohio State University. My dissertation on forms and figures of medieval friendship is slowly coming together while I help raise two wonderful and energetic girls (now 11 & 8!), run when I can, read before bed, and consume massive – and likely unhealthy – amounts of coffee. In the Fall, I was lecturing at Ohio State – Lima, Columbus State Community College, and Ohio Dominican. Next term, I will be returning to Columbus State and beginning at Antioch College.
What Artow Now is my latest attempt to blog/journal/write regularly. The goal was to offer weekly recaps of my teaching (four writing courses at three different campuses six days a week), writing (slowly and sparsely), reading (even more slowly and sparsely), and feeling. But I don’t think it ever quite made it. The blog may feature an occasional rant and some repostings of pieces that interest me. But mostly, the blog is my attempt to play with a continual response to its titular question – a question that is already playful in both its temporality and tone.
All thoughts and opinions are my own and are subject to change as my responses to the title ebb and flow.
