A reminder to my friends who are in SSA groups, I am available to speak to you about many interesting topics. I am currently mostly located in and around the DC area, but I’m happy to travel with sufficient notice. And if you happen to be a group who wants me to speak while I’m in the area for other reasons, let me know. I’m happy to speak about anything (spending the night at the Supreme Court!), but there is a list at the bottom of this e-mail with topics I’m fond of.
September 27-29th — New Orleans at the AJHA Conference, presenting a paper about the Rural Purge. Aside from Saturday at 3:20, I am free.
October ~1st-2nd — Boston for work. I’m pretty busy and it’s a quick turn around, but might be in the night before.
October ~24th-27th — Miami for work. Not sure exactly when I’m arriving and leaving, but I could have much free time if I want.
November 7th — Charlottesville, VA (more information soon).
November 15-17th — Springfield, MO for Skepticon, where I will be hosting a critically reading media workshop 4pm on Friday.
The end of November and much of December I will probably be in Columbia, SC a great deal and briefly probably in Kentucky, but almost certainly too late in the semester to be of interest to anyone.
And at some point in there I’m going to write a dissertation. No big deal.
Ashley would love to speak on the following topics:
- Atheism and diversity
- Introduction to feminism
- Media literacy and how to work with the media
- Religion versus women, minorities, and LGBT
- Using Social Media effectively
- Film, Television, Young Adult Literature
- Blogging, Podcasting, Vlogging
- History of Christianity
- Coping with burn out
