A Bigger Announcement

I am delighted to be able to tell all and sundry that I have accepted a position as Assistant Professor of English at Lake Forest College for this fall (where I shall have Blogland's very own Robert Archambeau as a colleague). So not only are Emily and I preparing for a major European trip for next week but we're also preparing to move. Leaving Ithaca will be hard—this town has been very, very good to and for both of us—but I am thrilled to finally become a full-time teacher and we're both excited about the opportunities that the Chicago area will present. I am especially pleased at the prospect of joining one of what the Chicago Postmodern Poetry site will show you is one of the liveliest and most interesting communities of poets in the country.
And let's not forget the food: my dad is from Chicago and I was raised with a reverence for the Chicago-style hot dog (you haven't lived until you've had one of these with the sport peppers, tomatoes, and an entire pickle laid on top, mustard yes ketchup absolutely not, the whole dusted with celery salt), deep dish pizza, ribs, and other delights. I will probably have to start going to the gym to compensate.
