Hi everyone! This is a short update post to let you know about a few changes with Gradifying and where it’s going:
- We’re taking a brief summer hiatus and we’ll return in time to get you prepped for the new academic year. Be sure to browse the archives of posts – all categorized and tagged for your searching convenience – to find resources on anything you’re looking to get up to speed with over these months. We have something to point you in the right direction for just about any topic you can think of. (And if you wind up proving me wrong, leave a comment about it below and we’ll fill in the gap as one of our next posts!)
- In the Fall we’ll be saying farewell to Jeremy Walsh, a terrific writer, colleague, and friend, who will be moving on to the thick of his fascinating research, teaching, and other commitments this coming year.
- I’m thrilled and frankly still a little shocked to announce that I will also be leaving my role as manager and writer for Gradifying because I have accepted a tenure track position here in the School of Religion at Queen’s. I couldn’t be happier or more grateful to be staying at Queen’s with the incredible people who are here, or to have this opportunity that feels like spotting a unicorn while riding Halley’s Comet through a double rainbow. More to the point about my time here with this blog, though: I’ve been here since the beginning, building it up with the witty and wonderful Colette Steer and now also the lovely and brilliant Rebecca Huegler, as well as the team that’s evolved to include a fantastic complement of writers. It’s been a privilege being in conversation with you readers and I hope what I’ve been part of here has been a service to you.
