One step closer to the Lion House

One step closer to the Lion House, I guess



Well, I think this is good news. My K'zoo paper has been accepted. So, that's a paper, a round table, and three potential articles in the works. All of a sudden, it looks like I'm kind of a working academic. Which means, of course, that I'd better get working!

BTW, do papers ever get rejected by K'zoo?

Honestly? I've never heard of a Kzoo paper getting rejected! At least, not from the general call (as opposed to specific sessions, which does happen). Which doesn't mean that all Kzoo papers *are* accepted, just that the people I know are all smart and with it enough that there's no reason anyone would ever reject their papers. ;-)

Again, I'm presuming Juniperus would have a much better answer!

And, of course, congrats on the acceptance, Mlle. Lioness! (Mme.? not sure which you'd prefer...)

Congrats! And, erm, I've only ever given zoo papers in situations where I was asked to, or my friends and I colluded on a session. But it's still cool to know you're going.

NK -- That's Dr.! Actually, in furrin, I'm fine with Mme., Frau, Senora, (except where Dr. actually *is* appropriate). English is the weird one. Then I'm Ms. except on campus, where I'm fighting a losing battle against Mrs.

Oh well, I think I'll just keep schtum on what I know about the K'zoo process. SLAC is starting to demand certain types of conferences -- Kzoo meets the 'bigger than state' criterion, and presumably it's peer-reviewed. I may try something for Leeds in 2008, though.

Congrats on impending lionesshood! :)

Hey, speaking of Leeds, are any of y'all going this summer? I'm not, but I'll be kinda-sorta in the neighborhood for any potential bloggy meetups...

I'm planning a UK trip, mostly to the BL, and maybe Cambridge. I'll check my dates.
