that really cool-sounding romanticism seminar next semester
For people interested in such things, here are the primary texts
we'll be using. Yes, of COURSE I've already ordered the ones I don't already own.
The prof, aka "newly-minted PhD," is very cool. I popped by her office the other day to chat about some things related to her research (no, I wasn't there kissing ass or anything—I'm working with some profs on some projects and one of them said that I should go talk to this particular prof given my knowledge of crazy weird things like TEI standards
, so I did) and we also talked about the grad seminar next semester and voila: list of texts.
Then we chatted briefly about theory class for no real reason, and she told me "you absolutely MUST read" a particular Derrida piece...which of course I have already printed for the next rainy day. So yeah, my classmates already think I'm strange...thankfully none of them were around when I said "alrighty!" to the reading of extra
Derrida. I did chuckle to myself, though.
