Two people on my Facebook feed today posted the link to this amazing Tumblr where grad students in English admit the things for which they have shame: English Grad Student Shaming.
After I tweeted this link out, I got this response:
“Number of times I’ve read Wuthering Heights = 0. Number of historical romances I read during the dissertation process = 63 and counting…”
I think my number is probably much higher than that. In total, for ALL romance novels, it’s creeping toward 200, I think. And my dissertation remains incomplete…
If ever there is a History Grad Student Shaming Tumblr, I’ll have to submit that as my entry.
