Second Post: Still Testing (But Not Derrida)

My blog title, Gypsy Scholar, probably violates political correctness, but intellectual travel has taken me around the world. I grew up in Arkansas and have lived in Texas, California, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, Israel, and Korea. I've also visited Mexico, Belgium, France, England, Scotland, Italy, Austria, Czechoslovakia (before the split), East Germany (before the union), Denmark, Russia, Singapore, and Japan. Since my scholarly career has brought me through all of these places to the outskirts of Seoul, where I now live, the terms "Gypsy" and "Scholar" both fit. Thus: "Gypsy Scholar."

Welcome to the 'sphere, Jeff. I will take note of your debut over at MP and put you on my blogroll.

I see you 'copied' 'my' template! But with better colors.

gypsy scholar, eh? well well well. let's just see what you come up with. if you're clever, come by my site and leave me a comment. i'm really just being random here and clicking the "next blog" button and thus i won't find you again unless you do.

i salute you for explaining yourself so very thoroughly, although i never will myself.

Hmmm ... well, "devastated," I'm afraid that I'm not especially clever. I did check on your blog, but I couldn't think of any clever comments. Sorry.

I find your blog very interesting. "I am a gypsy at heart, and I like to travel around." person myself. Could it be possible that I ask you a couple of questions about your profession since I want to be a gypsy scholar myself?

Certainly, you can ask questions. My 'profession' as Gypsy Scholar is hardly a major achievement, however, more an admission of failure to get tenure. But as a failure, I've succeeded wildly and can even offer advice.

What do you want to know? If you'd prefer email, you can find mine by Googling my name and the name of the author of Paradise Lost, which will lead you to a listserve with my email address.
