"And a special IU note: Besides all the talented professors who lent me their wisdom and colleagueship this weekend, especially John Lucaites, Jon Simons, Hariman from Northwestern and Purnima Bose, I want to especially thank the grad students. It was really an honor to spend time with you. I learned a fantastic amount from your insights and questions — on blogging, social media and visual critique — and can’t wait for another chance to do it again. Also, a special thanks to Phil Perdue, who I can say I knew “back in the day,” and to IU grad student, Jeremy Gordon, for prompting me think about the war, war images and tragedy in a more mythic sense."
