Open mouth, insert foot?
Monday, April 24
So it turns out Jose van Dijck
is not a man. I'm surprised I even made that assumption, when most weblog scholarship seems to be written by women.
But in any case: apologies. Not a mistake a copy editor should make, no matter what the first name.
My first draft is still getting its going over, so in the meantime I've been reading Genette's Narrative Discourse
and trying to collect (published and/or well-known) blog definitions. More on both of those projects later.
Also: I guess I'm presenting a brief overview of my thesis (7 minutes or so) for "Works in Progress" this Friday. I don't know yet what I'm going to say, but (luckily) I also have to turn in an analytic abstract of the thesis this week...
Alles Wird Gut
