Thanks to Clara for inviting me to join this blog!  I hope I can learn to make the time to be a good blogger.  I would like to echo Clara’s last post about the APA, namely that the round-table discussion about teaching rape texts was for me, too, one of the highlights of this year’s meeting.  A format that allowed for many voices was welcome, especially at a meeting where even organized panels did not allow speakers enough time to carry on a discussion, much less hear questions and comments from the audience.  This panel opened up the possibility to bring together scholarship, pedagogy and activism in our communities.  Yes, Clara!  This is precisely what the meeting should be about.
