Inside Higher Ed is an online journal for academics; last week, I received an email from one of their copyeditors asking to do an interview. Today, the article is running. Of all the many answers to her many questions, the copyeditor-turned-writer only used one quote--ironically, about YOU...the fans! Hey, I'm good with that. You're the people who really matter. Without you, the blogs, the books, the articles, the reviews--none of it makes much of a difference. So here's to you! From Dubai to Australia to all over these United States:
I'm not sure how long the above piece will be available after today or if it will even be archived. If you read the piece, you'll notice that my co-editor seems to dominate the article. We weren't interviewed together so my best guess is that the interviewer may have had a little crush on my phenomenal phenomonology philosopher! Jeremy is a charismatic guy afterall.... ;)
In October 2010, Woman's World will run a piece based on an interview I had with one of their editors about what liking certain pop culture vamps reflects about an individual. Both Twilight & Philosophy and True Blood & Philosophy are mentioned. So are bad boys and spankings. Oh my!
Tuesday, May 18, 2010, The Huffington Post will run an article on the vampire craze in popular culture by world-renowned philosopher/author, Tom Morris, also the editor of Superheroes & Philosophy (Open Court, 2005), AND one of my favorite superheroic colleagues! Tom's interview was comprehensive and also a lot of fun. He and I will both be a part of a forthcoming PBS documentary on American comic books premiering in 2011-2012.
Nothing too deep or philosophical today--just an update. More tomorrow...I promise!
Until next time, dear readers....
