Updates

Unfortunately, I realize that I’ve been neglecting this blog lately. I can only blame myself for that. 🙂

A few updates seem in order at least.

The latest book is past the copyeditors and headed to the layout department. Page proofs should be in my hands in a couple months, with release scheduled for sometime in the upcoming Autumn.

My employer (a community college) is taking a very careful approach to re-opening campus. Currently we’re at something under 5% of classes being face-to-face (F2F), and even those are largely the ones that require hands on work (ex. some nursing courses). Summer, the plan’s 10-15% with potential for some limited offices. Autumn, about 25-30% F2F with a comparative services opening. All of which is good and smart (unlike the approaches in some other states and institutions; one friend’s CC has been open F2F continuously through the pandemic).

In the meantime, I put pen to paper for a third book. Just starting notes for an introduction so far, but it’s started. Reviewing a few things, I think there are definitely two, possibly three, books left in me. The first (third) is built out of old posts here. The second is a hybrid of what my dissertation was going to be at the start (before I narrowed focus for time) and a few articles I thought about writing years ago. The third is more nebulous at the moment, as the rough idea occurred to me and I haven’t developed it yet. I’m not even sure if the last is a “book” or a collection of essays (edited anthology), e.g. me alone or a collaborative effort.

To explore the last option, I’m thinking I’l probably put together some posts here, to organize and mess with my thoughts on the subject. Eventually.
