Elevating the Art of Procrastanalysis – Academics wasting time on pop culture


with one comment

Welcome to The Moth Chase, where procrastanalysis is taken very seriously. This experiment began when we (Natalie and Kathryn) were in different Ph.D. programs and realized that we, like all good graduate students, would rather be watching TV. Instead of feeling guilty about the intensity of our extra-curricular commitments, we gave into the ephemeral chase for meaning where there may be none. But at least this kind of writing was fun. Three years later we’re both professors. And we’re still watching TV. Over the years, we’ve invited other awesome contributors to join the conversation.

If you are also a lover of pop culture and you find yourself wondering if you could survive the zombie apocalypse or what will happen to Walt’s meth empire, we hope you’ll join the chase.

For the dorky academic story behind the name of this blog, see here.
