When I became department Chair for the second time around, I thought it would be easy — well, easier anyway — but I was wrong. I felt a bit like Rip Van Winkle having woken up to a completely different administrative world in 2015 than the one I “left” in 2010. It’s proven difficult to pay much attention to my career as a scholar while Chairing a department. Hopefully after June 2020 when I’m done Chairing, I can return to exploring a more active online presence. Although I feel pretty sure that while I’ve been Chairing, the online world has changed to the point that “blogging” is sooo 2005 and I’ll need to catch up to whatever the latest thing is in 2020. I doubt, for example, that it will be Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, though you won’t find me in any of those places even if they are “current” by the time I’m resurfacing.
