I’ve had mixed reviews about blogging my classes here: some love it, some obviously find it distracting. I’d like to say that I’d stick completely to research, but my academic life is not so neatly compartmentalized, and I’m not sure the blog should be either. In order to keep things a bit more orderly, I’ll post “highlights” of what I’m writing for the course blog here. Here’s my welcome statement:
Hello, and welcome to Cyberporn and Society. If this is your first visit, you should read over the syllabus. In case you are curious, the chart below shows a breakdown of the majors listed by enrolled students. As you can see, we have a good mix of majors. I hope you will all bring your academic disciplines to bear in our discussions, and I look forward to learning much from you all.
You might consider heading over to facebook to see who else is taking the class.
