I had three essays and seven blog posts this week, moderated a twitter chat, and went to a conference to give a talk and learn from my colleagues. Busy!
Here's the piece you probably didn't read:

My other two essays:
- My first movie review: 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Is the Feminist Action Flick You've Been Waiting For (Vice.com, 5/13/15)
- Annals of Public Engagement: A Medievalist on Savage Love (Chronicle of Higher Education, 5/12/15)
And my blog posts:
