Dear Intrepid Google-searcher:
Thank you for your interest in my Ph.D. application! I appreciate the time and effort you have put in to find out more about me as a candidate, and as you have arrived at this blog, you are in just the right place. Over the past few years, I have maintained this blog as an outgrowth of my academic scholarship, as well as an outlet for my personal thoughts on politics, Christianity, television, technology, and whatever else might strike my fancy.
To the right, you will notice two sidebars: "The Best" and "The Rest." As should be apparent from their titles, these represent archives of all materials that have appeared on this site since September 2007, when I began maintaining it in earnest. "The Best" highlight posts that I think represent either the most popular or most well-written entries. If you are looking for some of my entries on textual criticism, these posts include my thoughts on the Pericope Adulterae and the original text of the New Testament. If you are looking for my work on feminism, particularly as it relates to biblical studies (and its presence on the internet), I would suggest using the search box in the upper-left-hand corner of your browser window.
As you look through these materials, I would ask only that you keep in mind the medium of a weblog. Few of these posts are meant to be academic; much more often they are reactions and meanderings, meant primarily to entertain myself, and the small number of people I might count as readers. Which is not to say there is nothing upon which you might evaluate my status as an applicant. Only that what is here ought to be taken with a grain of salt.
Thank you again for your consideration. Happy searching!
All the best,
