Talked to Emma for far too long last night. (Miss you already, dearheart. Yay for Internet.) I have decided i am going to teach cultural studies.
One course on the Whedonverse. One course on fairytales. One course on Jesus movies.
Fanfiction should be its own department. Copyright law would be a requirement for the major. Courses would include:
-fairytales
-midrash and similar traditions in world religions
-representations of Jesus, Judas, and Mary (3 separate courses)
-the tradition of retelling/sequel/prequel in classical literature (sequels/prequels written by people other than the author of the original work)
-historical fiction
-parody/satire
-adaptations of Greek mythology

No seriously, this is my plan right now. I would be hella excited to create syllabi for these courses, and there is always stuff to be written in this field, and i would actually be interested in writing stuff, so the whole publishing requirement for university tenure would be a non-issue. (The whole publishing thing is the stumbling block the size of Mount Everest keeping me from seriously considering teaching college.)

Also, listening to Emma talk, i can totally see myself getting sucked into X-Men fandom. Or maybe i’ll just listen to her tell me the stories :)
