Hello all, this is a program note of sorts and I’m looking for your contributions. As all of those pitiful souls known as MAPHers are aware, the third paper assignment comes out today in just a few hours. I am considering the possibility of basically doing my paper live–that is, doing a series of posts Tues, Wednesday, Thurs, and Friday on the process of writing this analytic exposition on Lacan. Now, if that is an intriguing idea to you, why? What things would you like to see? If reading through a blow by blow of someone crafting an academic paper sounds like the ninth circle of Hell, why? What should I avoid writing about?
For an example of what I have in mind, check out my series “Academic Autopsy” which dissected the Hegel analytic exposition and laid bare all my concessions and work-arounds. I’d love folks to leave comments on this site, but if you’d prefer, I can be reached by e-mail as well–just check the contact list circulated by the MAPH office for my personal email.
