Plagiarism Paralysis

I’ve want to write a post about plagiarism, with reference to an excellent series of educational “what-is-plagiarism?” posters that I recently discovered.

But, the company publishing the posters won’t return my emails asking for permission to reproduce them.

Studying Religion or Theology: What’s The Use?

Akma and Mark (links are to their home pages) shared a Facebook link to the Geek Muse: 100 Reasons to Study Theology and Religion: A Call for Comments. With religion and theology departments coming under the knife, Geek Muse calls for your arguments: how do these programs benefit our society? What good are they? Give it some thought, and go comment.

The Endless Summer of Endless Teaching…

…ends very soon. In mere days, in fact. Thanks for your patience, and don’t delete that RSS feed just yet.

In the meantime, enjoy [FOOTNOTE] the biblical exegesis of Wanda Jackson (“Hard Headed Woman”).

BACK TO POST“enjoy” here ≈ being acutely reminded of how frequently the only “empowerment” available has amounted to “internalizing as self-loathing the sweeping prejudices of the patriarchy, but being really saucy and spunky about it.” h/t to Judy in comments.

Higher Education Blogroll

If you haven’t noticed it before, this page sports two blogrolls. The second one, titled “Other Academic Blogs,” lists some of my favorite (non-biblical studies) bloggers in higher education. Most are women, and most are pseudonymous.

Check them out, if you haven’t already or if you haven’t lately. Let me know if you suggest any additions.

Passover on YouTube

Overwhelmed this week? Yes, thanks for asking. In the meantime, enjoy a collection of YouTube videos relating to Passover, courtesy of JR.

A Wiki Bible (at כל־האדם)

I will write more substantively on this later on, but for now, just take a look at Joseph’s post and its comment thread.

Short version of my response: I very much like the idea of a Bible translation that is subject to the Wiki’s ways.

Is it Just Me?

Or do you hear the strains of a modern Qohelet in the weary workplace recollections of a dime-store Cassandra? (Eff-Bomb Alert: grown-up language for grown-ups.)
