I find it ironic when there are workshops for teaching people to do DH stuff to increase access to stuff, and yet that training is itself physically-bound and gate-kept.

3/7 we're definitely just doing related books that have shaped my path.

"So, you can like speak Ancient Greek?" Yes. - I love meeting people who've never been 'taught' that ancient languages can't be spoken

I'm thinking of leaving academia so I can focus on my true passions: research and education.

It's not quite so bad here. The pay is decent if not great. But my only control over assessment is actually marking the assignments.

Ah, that approach would be interesting. Alas, it's predicated on me having more freedom and authority in this class than I have...

I'm not sure one can actually "ban" students from writing certain types of things. I mean, I de facto do this by repeated strike-through + comments

I would happily ban students frm attempting to make exegetical points from the fact of something being a NT hapax, if I thought it would do any good.

2/7 covers of books, maybe not so much that I like, but that have been formative...

I have been very blessed that, since finishing my PhD, I have rarely been short of work, and more and more it is work that I genuinely enjoy. I'm not rolling in cash or academic kudos, but I have enough and I mostly enjoy what I do.

I'm reading Aristophanes' Frogs with a student, and it's great because I literally have no idea what it's about or what's going to happen.
