On Friday Open Thread

@SarahP Meaning (non-elegantly) how many of the same courses are you teaching at once? If it's 4 courses in a semester but they're all the same syllabus, maybe adding one more at new place wouldn't be the worst... but if the 4/4 place is a new job I'd be'd nervous about also making time for a fifth course at a new place!

I think I just failed at explaining myself. Friday afternoon brain, MORE COFFEE PLS.

@SarahP Agreeing with @MmeLibrarian: borderline. Is it a same/similar prep?

On Where the Girls Were: A 1965 Taxonomy of Coeds

As a lady historian, I can report Barnard was not included in the Princeton guide. Snub or blessing in disguise?
