to and during
Recurring "going out of business" sales and comeback tours come to mind. Here's hoping this is neither. Just in case though, I'm introducing #returnredux tag. The month of March was like being there while not being there. I needed a longer NAWD recovery period than anticipated. Then came après NAWD recovery. A Rashomon Effect post is in the works. And others. #afterNAWD is, after all, the new NAWD genre.
Après-après would be de trop. So I opted for the busman's holiday version and took Two Writing Teachers' annual month (of March) long Slice of Life blogging challenge, not posting to this but to another blog, one (so far) less connected to this network. If I keep posting, then I'm back; if not, then not. If back but not the same, chalk it up to the spirit of NAWD: I feel like doing something different here but am not sure yet just what.
"What not" is much clearer than "what" Not straight up news. That I already do and better on Precarity Dispatches. Most curated re-blogging goes to As the Adjunctiverse Turns, with some to the Precarious Faculty (Tumblr). Not announcements. Facebook, PD and PF/Tumblr handle those. There are limits to being the adjuncts' adjunct. More Adjunct Stories? Yes, there (but not here. Maybe meta-stories about the genre, site reviews and where to find them, submit your stories, etc.
Labor news comes to mind. As Keith Hoeller recently reminded the adj-l list, mainstream media labor coverage is thin on the ground. What better voice to add to our own academic labor news and information stream than Keith's? Then there is organizing the massive collection of NAWD and related links and news stories into a manageable (searchable and shareable) public database. I'm still not ready to think about that.
