It is time for an academic Thanksgiving (at least it is for me, flew home early because it was Reading Week in the UK), that time of year when we give thanks for when our ancestral academic Deans fed us when we were hungry. Something like that…cornucopia with grants, laptops, and travel funds. Who knows how it all started.
Still, it is that time of year we all reflect on what we are thankful for. So what am I thankful for, as an academic?
