I'm back from the PCA/ACA conference
Random book recommendation: Rosemary's Baby
Even if horror isn't your thing, read the book through a feminist/gender studies lens. Check out the movie too, because it's brilliantly acted, but pirate online or something so that you're not contributing any money to Roman Polanski.
This past weekend, two of my colleagues from my GCS cohort traveled to Washington DC to present papers at the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association conference. It was the first time I have presented by myself, and I presented under the Horror topic. My paper is called "'She wanted to be a man': Gender and the Spectre of Queerness in H.P. Lovecraft's 'The Thing on the Doorstep.'" It was pretty well-received, I think, even if I was a bit awkward because I was nervous.
