Bonnie J. Morris’ signed copy of Revenge of the Women’s Studies Professor ~ Indiana University Press, 2009 😈

A selection to mark Bastille Day, France’s national day: . Joan of Arc, by Marina Warner, examines the history of the soldier, hero and saint who is the enduring symbol of France’s nationhood. . Three novels by Antoine Laurain in a style of “Gallic whimsy,” including the charming The President’s Hat, called “a hymn to la vie Parisienne.” . A lovely old book of French short stories en Francais—more than a match for my French skills, alas. . A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens, a high school staple, at least in my day, set at the storming of the Bastille. It’s a Signet Classic, too! . What are your favorite French, or French-themed, titles? . #bastilleday #frenchnationalday #frenchbookstagram #joanofarc #antoinelaurain #ataleoftwocities #charlesdickens #happybastilleday #signetsaturday #signetclassics #bookstagram #bookfeature #bookstack #shelfiesaturday #shelfie #bookcollection #booksofig #frenchhistory #oldbooks #vintagebooks #womensstudies #medievalstudies #saturdayfun #frenchliterature #livrestagram #livrestagrammeuse #lafetenationale #sofrench

I have nothing against homosexuals. I’m just proud to be straight. Not a hate crime, just a fact!

Ok now I’m actually done with this project! I can’t wait to hang these in my brand new dream classroom! Thanks to @bccprin , our new classroom will also have couches, high top tables, and other seating options for us to crochet, knit, read, and learn around! Not to mention, this new learning environment will make for an even better launch of Women’s Studies next Spring as it allows more opportunity for student choice and project-based learning. So many exciting things coming this next year to B-CC! I can’t wait for 2018-2019! @bccyarnclub #womensstudies #yarnclub #BCCSGA #flexibleseating #flexibleseatingclassroom #IteachEnglish #Englishteacher
