To everything, there is a season, or so I’ve heard. My own grad student season was marked by occasional hiccups but many more delights; participating in the SEAC Underground blogging community certainly numbered among the latter. What started as a way to continue conversations begun at the annual meeting became one of my favorite venues for reading and writing, and I am so grateful for all that I learned from my co-authors and commenters over the last few years.
But, as Shane recently mentioned, most of our original blogging crew is in a new season, in which lesson plans, student advising, project directing, and in some cases, itty bitty babies leave little time for regular blogging. Rather than allow SEAC Underground to burn out or fade away, we are happy to report that a new generation of grad student bloggers will be taking over.
In my stead, you will find Christina Sampson, a graduate student at the University of Michigan and thoroughly rad human being. In addition to her deets from the department website (below), you can learn more about her interests and fieldwork at her own blog Erastoria, which I can’t recommend enough.
Christina, Morgan, and other new additions to the SEAC Underground roster promise to breathe new life into this little corner of the internet, and I hope you will enjoy hearing from them as much as I will. Thanks for a good run, SEAC U. It’s be an honor, a privilege, and a helluva lot of fun.
