A “Revisited” blog post indicates that I reread the original and used AI-assisted tools (e.g., Grammarly) to improve grammar and word choice.
Initially published in 2015.
Tonight, I’ll finish reading Meg Wolitzer’s novel The Interestings. I teased my student assistants recently that I’d love to follow the trajectory of their lives over the next thirty years as Meg Wolitzer does her characters. In some ways, I have been able to do that for past students by comparing where they are now (as conveyed to me by Facebook, Linkedin, and campus visits) with the information I have kept in their advising folders—photos, letters, occasionally even a paper they wrote. Recently, I was reunited with a former student (selfie available upon request) whose daughter might be enrolling this year and might even be assigned to work with me. So many memories were triggered by the Carroll chimes, familiar places, and familiar faces. Feel free to share your Carroll Moments with me.
Below are some photos from several years ago. Precious Carroll moments that evoke several stories about you!
