Now This Is Cool

A mailing from University of Michigan Law School - we're so fabulous, come to our school! - that particularly mentions
William Ian Miller, who teaches a legendary course in bloodfeuds and has been offering seminars on his ongong work on unsavory emotions...
Now that could get me to UMich.

Here's the relevant section of Miller's curriculum vitae:
Courses: Property, Negotiations, Bloodfeuds. Seminars: Violence; Humiliation; Disgust; Cowardice; Earliest English Laws, Faking It.
That's what I'm talking about. Yes.

my ex husband teaches on the "earliest english laws." they're weird. and violent. and usually involve women as property. also very odd ideas of divine intervention. he internalized it all a bit too much (well, not the violence) -- hence the "ex."

There's a chair with a high turnover rate at Harvard for professors who specialize in the same thing as the UMich guy but who keep getting packed off to prison for attempts on his life. Some old academic disagreement about something or other.
