I’d like to see a whole French Revolutionary calendar of new academic terms:
germinal, prairial, messidor, etc. “Colloquia/ums,” kind of make me think of getting mugged in a supper club coat room. Surely there’s something better out there for such a course form. The war for the store in higher ed. will surely have a nomenclatural front. The Electronic Delivery of Educational Services Association [TM] has launched the term “podium” classes as a kind of sneering dismissive for the practice whereby somebody else is actually in the same room and within sight of the active learners; a neologism I could kind of do without.

I try to beat that one out of my students too, although I usually spend more time on getting tribe out of their vocabulary.

An idea or event doesn’t contain within itself the seeds of later ones, it provides an environment (ground) in which later ones can grow.

Any tips for getting my classmates in a Women’s Studies grad course on methods to stop using that word? I die a bit inside every time I hear it.
