Duke University Press is having a 50% off sale through the end of this month, so I ordered two of their recent releases.
Brim, Matt. Poor Queer Studies: Confronting Elitism in the University. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2020.
Brim and I were on the same panel at MLA this past January, and he seems like a nice guy, so I was pleased when I saw that he has a new book out. We both teach at schools with large first-generation college student populations, thus I expect his book to be helpful for my own teaching.
Kumar, Amitava. Every Day I Write the Book: Notes on Style. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2020.
I love books about academia and find it helpful as a refresher for my writing to read a style manual every once in a while, and thus was intrigued when I got an email advertising this new book. At 50% off I couldn’t resist.
