I was browsing around, and found this article where someone is asking the author if she'll be putting her thesis online. She replied that she'd be using the ideas and reworking them to make them easier to read. "The writing style is pretty academic and not terribly accessible, which is a big criticism I make of feminist scholarship."

And here I had to laugh. Because you know one of the comments I got in my proposal defence? I got told that my thesis proposal was too much like a novel and basically too readable for a scholarly endeavour.

If you ever wondered why academics are so boring, now you know. ;)
