Can I instead write an article about how the concept of guilty pleasures in based in classism, racism, & sexism instead? Because “low brow” often means poor/working class, racialized or feminized things? How bout that article?

Further, half the things people are replying about—sci-fi (my own research), reality TV & gaming—are things people do actual real research on already.
I also feel like this article concept is another way of performing that academics can’t embrace pleasure, that work can not be pleasurable. I say fuck that and read @adriennemaree’s new book Pleasure Activism next month when it drops.
TFW your half-awake tweet with a typo is getting a lot of traction...🤷🏾‍♀️ in = is up there, obviously.
Also, since you’re here, I literally talk about the need to embrace pleasure in our academic work in the conclusion to my book #BodymindsReimagined on #disability #race & #gender in black women’s speculative fiction. Available from @DukePress for 30% off using code E18BODYM.
Ok so I have written a partial draft of this article. But would someone actually publish it? @timeshighered & @jgro_the? Or maybe @chronicle or @insidehighered? Preference for something that isn’t behind a pay wall, would also be nice if it pays. Internet, do your thing.
