I am currently employed as an adjunct professor at two state colleges in Connecticut (adjunct meaning intellectual migrant worker). While I enjoy the work (well, more often than not), I am currently working on returning to graduate school to acquire my doctorate. My areas of interest, in terms of literature, center around seventeenth century utopias and dystopias and sexual representations as a form of political and social satire.
I've been watching anime for several years (when I first started watching, fan subbed anime was only available via vhs), and I fully intend to continue doing so for as long as possible. I have a variety of interests when it comes to genre, but based on the above you should be able to figure out where my true interests reside. I do a little fan subbing (qc work) which, while trying at times, has proven to be an enjoyable experience
While I do enjoy watching fan subbed releases (how else would we keep up on the latest and greatest?), I do own quite a bit as well. I am also a huge fan of manga (I love exploring a story in its entirety, something that is rarely possible with anime).
