Beginning tomorrow, 10,000 literature scholars, more or less, descend on San Francisco for three days to hash out the latest (?) in lit-crit and the dismal job market. I get to cover it for the Chronicle. Wish me luck. If you happen to be there, drop me a note (jhowarddc AT gmail DOT com or jennifer DOT howard AT chronicle DOT com), look for me in the publishers’ hall, or grab me (not literally, please) after a panel for a cup of coffee or a drink. News tips and hot rumors welcome.
