Thoughts on Grad School

As much as I complain, I do like going to grad school. I like learning new stuff, but if I have to hear the words “Postmodernism”, or “paradigm” I might just freak out. It’s not that I don’t appreciate the lessons learned, but I dream of a class that is a “tell it like it is” class. A class where folks don’t feel they have to use the biggest, oddest words possible.

In “tell it like it is” class “paradigms” will only be used when talking about making change.

Way more interesting and productive doing it that way.

    Ha. (Again).

    I enjoy this as I am off to read about Structuralism and Post-Structuralism and Said’s Orientalism for Thursday, oh and also get an outline of my final paper on do a Lacanian read of Wide Sargasso Sea.

    I’ll sign up for the Tell It Like it Is 6010 when you teach it. Will you accept via the web? It’d be a loooong commute…

  2. I don’t know. If I taught it, it could be a bit…well…blue.
