Some very useful tips for academic conference attendees

Are you a regular attendee at any of the big annual academic conferences – MLA, AHA? Then you need to read the very funny tips on the Sample Reality blog, relating to the recent MLA conference (but useful for other big meetings!).

There are some particularly, ahem, useful tips if you’re there for a job interview… My favourite/favorite is no.46

Tip: Be sure your author name adjectives are correct, e.g., Kafkaesque, Dickensian, Shakespearean, Yeatsy, Austeniferous, DeLilloid. Posted at 1:36 PM on 12/22/2009 by amandafrench

There are over 100 more on the blog…

Thanks to @mlaconvention for the link!
