RSL: Table of Contents

If you've been reading along lately, you know that I've decided to gather the ideas on this blog into a book of essays. My working title is

Research as a Second Language:
Essays on Academic Writing and the Crisis of Representation

Here's a table of contents, which links to my overview of each section:


Part I: Science as Hustle and Bustle
1. The Scholar Disappears
2. The Archives of Babel
3. A Supplementary Clerk

Part II: Writing Process Reengineering
4. Finitude
5. Space
6. Time

Part III: Existential Errands
7. The Crisis of Representation
8. Getting Your Facts Straight
9. Getting Your Act Together


The book will consist of nine 5000-word essays. This will be framed by a 3000-word introduction and a 2000-word conclusion. 50,000 words in all.
