This is a live blogging of the session.
This model of an open professoriat is not my ideal. Based on consumption, not exchange. Yale’s openness only flows one direction. Window versus door.
Last summer woman posted call for sharing information on modern poetry. Opportunity to share my work and get feedback was a real boon. Good model of exhange. Digital humanities.
Not a lot of scholars who are participating in social media.
What does it mean when this openness is filled with people who already agree with us? How open is that?
How open can we be really, if our chair is following our twitter stream? (Not. You know my experience with that.–er, no you don’t. I didn’t put it on the blog. Perhaps now I will be able to do that.)
Call for a different kind of interaction, that with our audience.
