Sound like fun? Maybe theyll talk about alterity also! KC Johnson at Minding the Campus (H/T Instapundit) takes a look at the program for the 2013 American Historical Association conference, especially at the priceless paper titles . Did you know that 1945-1965 saw the physical body as a site of cultural diplomacy?” You missed that when you read your George Kennan, eh?
Not that I should talk. My latest political science conference papers title is Cowboys and Corpses: The Moral Perils of the State of Nature in The Coen Brothers True Grit. Yeah, I messed up by getting the word moral in there sans quotation marks. Ill do better next time. And I now discern Peters master plan: by inviting me to write a paper on TRUE GRIT and corpses , he knew hed be giving my academic CV a decisive edge! A way to dress up my penchant for “dead white guys!”
