Useless Research

Here is another little glimpse into the people who are reading my research:

I’ll keep posting these for as long as my social media remain cluttered by weepy posts by academics who believe that nobody reads our research and we are wasting our lives. The student from Saudi Arabia, by the way, keeps accessing my feminist book on the female Bildunsgroman. So I don’t feel like my work is useless.

Academics should stop feeling sorry for themselves.

    Maybe they’re like millenial students:
    But not enough people are reading it!
    They don’t praise me enough!
    Why don’t they write and tell me how much it means to them?!
    Why hasn’t Oprah called?
