Unfortunately, conferences also force participants to slog through days of other, stodgy, tedious, and inaccessible essays painfully read aloud by professors who wouldn't know "voice modulation" if it climbed down their throat and bit their vocal cords.
Having attended a number of these conferences, I feel confident that this is typical of most of them.
It's also the status quo when it comes to this collection of conference essays.
The collection begins with a bang from pop-culture-referencing Katherine Sutherland who does an excellent job of channeling Camille Paglia's snide sarcasm without the vehemently anti-liberal mentality. A dizzying, wonderfully readable ride on the Gen-X vs. Baby Boomer roller coaster.
A fascinating essay from Kathleen N. Gurnett on the grisly state of Victorian-era cemeteries, charnel houses and executions and why YOU should know this to appreciate _Frankenstein_.
From out the mouth of a literature professor, a tribute to colonial viciousness, and outright lying, when it came to Aztecs and their strange ways. Grisly descriptions of sacrifice a PLUS.
I encourage you to buy this collection for these gems, OR if your particular interests lie in academic writing.
