Are you Jeniffer Brown? Well, the writing is dull, and the content matches. I'm not an anthropologist or whatever you are though. Are you seriously a professor though? Your writing, on this post and in-book, is very mediocre.

>Published in 1987 >OP can't into grammar Nice try. This is a carefully disguised homework thread. Critique the chapter yourself asshole.

Even if this was true, which it isn't, no Professor in the entire history of academia has ever given a single fuck about what undergrads think.

>>3003943 Yes I am, and its not anthropology, I dont understand what makes it dull, I find it quit interesting. How do you think I could improve it so its more engaging and interesting for students?

Why must you continue to reply to this obvious homework thread, /lit/.

>>3003961 Well I could for my lectures. although I don't assign this reading to my class, it is another professor who is.

>>3003967 Thanks, I guess this helps. it just bothers me getting made fun of, and honestly I never had much peers through out my life, so I guess this is why its made me feel the way I do.

>>3003963 You're obviously lying, but just in case you're not (you are) why the fuck would you care since it was published in 1987? Why the fuck are you even on 4chan, you've got to be at least in your 40s?

But... Why would woman come to /lit/ of all places? Why would a serious academic who is an old lady come to this place of angry permavirgin males and tell us her name? I call bullshit.

>>3003969 I dont have to write anything. I was thinking about writing a bit of an edit on the article in the link which I have written years ago.

OP might not be trolling. If she is who she said she is she probably doesn't know how to internets.

>>3003988 OP definitely is trolling, if she is who she said she is her mannerisms wouldn't be so immature or well-articulated in a way that suggests she is intimate with board culture.

>>3003994 I am some what familiar with this site, one of my fellow colleagues made a comic about her forgetting math quizzes at home for her discreet math course.

>>3003994 Maybe she's a friendly and charismatic professor on /lit/ yet somehow also assertive and perky in her tone. >>3003983 Maybe even a seducing dominatrix after class?

>>3003994 I do think OP is trolling, but the reason you're using to deduce that is faulty, I think. There's no reason that an academic couldn't have familiarity with boards culture. It would be a little more odd, I think, for them to come and post here and be so blithely unconcerned about the likely results of that - to be familiar with this specific board and yet so unfamiliar with the way the board operates. But having a familiarity with the language of boards culture is not in itself proof that OP is not a professor.

All I wanted was a younger perspective on how I should go about writing my next paper, but since you don't believe me ill find another outlet to do so, goodnight /lit/ it is getting late.

>>3004026 I feel like OP is just an old lady who dosnt really no much, and has just been on 4chan a few times.
