Subject: ReŇ2■: Natalie, how 'bout this idea?
This is an excellent idea, Wayne, but don't hold your breath waiting
for me to do it. I haven't figured out
how to make my own web page yet. Anybody else?
Could it be that the possibility of getting a grant for further
development on our site might motivate someone to take it over
while Natalie is gone? Bringing in grant money goes a long way
toward tenure these days.
Basically what we are doing here is having English faculty collaborate with
someone in computer science. We're going to ask for money for a server
devoted to an O'Connor project and for release time for the participants.
Projects recently funded by the NEH include a site for the teaching of
If we weren't sitting on an O'Connor goldmine, I'd be fast at work on this
language project. I cannot tell you how much I could use a site like this
and a basic picture encyclopedia every time I teach class.
P.S. I just ordered your book. It looked good in the advertisement. I
also used your name in vain yesterday at a department meeting when I said
that we ought not hire any more lit professors; we should make the new
positions teach film, English language, and folklore. Since I had just
read your book ad, I used you as an example of a linguist who could teach
courses in things like Southern American--classes sure to make in this town
left intact by Sherman.
