And Icon

"The elements of the dinner-parties which Mrs Lennox gave, were beauty, men, and pedantic conversation. They talked in a sensuous way outside, lashed themselves when they were alone, and squandered their capabilities in the drawing-room."

The Chora of the Twin Towers

I'd like to announce publication of a special project for 9/11 and the rhet/comp community. The project is entitled "The Chora of the Twin Towers" and has been published on 9/11/11 at Enculturation by Robert Leston (NYC College of Tech), Geof Carter (Saginaw Valley State), and Sarah Arroyo (California State Long Beach).

It will occupy Enculturation as the only featured project for the week following 9/11. After the first week, it will be featured as the lead project in the next issue.


Why I No Longer Create Syllabi

At some point, using “syllabi” as the plural of “syllabus” started to bother me.

Being “correct” about egg-headed words such as phenomenon/phenomena or criterion/criteria is among the most visible markers of education and class — and insufferable pedantry.

For instance, those who wear tinfoil hats while blogging from their parents’ basements are likely to wave their beer bottles and complain “The media is out to get me,” while those working in the media are likely to set down their wine glasses and sniff, “Actually, the media are out to get you.”
