My first academic conference is coming up (25th Aug). I just checked the schedule. My session is the last session of the last day. And it actually looks like I’m the last person in that session. I don’t know if I should think it’s nice or horrible.

I’m going to present an analysis of the discourse in a Swedish government report on correspondence education. I have found some quite interesting rhetorics in it, which point (circumstantially) to a “correspondence education bubble” in Sweden in the 1950’s. It seems like lots of people bought courses, but that few finished them. Maybe one could compare it to buying a gym card nowadays? A purchase of good intentions?
