Well I am finally making it to my second sabbatical in my career. Once I turn my grades in in May, I am considering myself to officially be on sabbatical. It is much needed, believe me, and it will be for the entire next academic year thanks to the success of a Rice Individual Faculty Fellowship generously granted to me by the Humanities Research Center at Rice University which is funding the second semester. My project? You guessed it. I will be writing my book The Ancient New Age: The Triumph of Gnostic Spirituality and the Birth of Christianity.
So I was wondering whether or not to start blogging about what I am doing while on Sabbatical? It might be interesting to log my progress. It might help me think through the tough spots, the blind spots and the discouraging spots. And it would be a boon to get feedback from you on some of my ideas as I am in the process of writing.
Is this something that you would be interested in following?
