Scholarly journals? Really? Oh boy.


Previous Entry Scholarly journals? Really? Oh boy. Sep. 15th, 2012 @ 10:09 pm Next Entry
This is going to be meta. So, very very meta.

Because I am a research nerd, I was playing around with Google Scholar and discovered a number of articles online about this blog. Scholarly articles. That have been peer-reviewed and published in scholarly journals. Errrr....

I would like to, right now, apologize to any and all researchers for the title of my Livejournal! I called this blog/livejournal "House o'Crack" as it was primarily my knitting blog and, as many a knitter knows, yarn is like crack and is utterly addictive. It also turned into my SCA and other research blog and, I assure you, I had no idea that I was going to be written about in scholarly journals one day. So, again, I apologize to all scholars and researchers who have had to write "House o'Crack" in their footnotes and got the "wth" look from their editors. :)

I am now tempted to change it to something more appropriate like "Illadore's House of Yarn and Food and Internet thingies" or "Illadore's House of Copyright Infringement" or "Hi, I'm not a journalism student!" or even just "Illadore's Webpage!" -- however, that cow has already left the barn, and I might as well admit to my folly and leave it as is. Besides, yarn is crack! Especially Malabrigo wool. Just ask a knitter (who is not allergic to wool.) They will understand and nod knowingly.

So, instead, I will leave you with the articles I found.

PS. Any researcher or journalist who wants to cite what I am, "food blogger" more or less fits (as I do have a blog and I have written about food); however, I think "amateur medieval food enthusiast" works best. Or "Food nerd" or "That weird woman who is nuts about apple pie" but I am not now nor have I ever been a journalism student. :)

You may not be a journalism student, but I can testify from personal experience that telling your story to a group of journalism students as the reaction was unfolding left them spellbound. I thank you for sharing it, so I could make a point I doubt they'll forget.

I think that's my favorite part of the whole thing -- that this was used as a teaching experience. :)

And thank you for teaching journalism students the right thing to do!

Hello! I'm sorry for contacting you through your blog, but I was searching for you and with all the posts and reposts about your Tale of Two Tarts, this was the first thing that came up that I knew actually went to YOU!

I'm Countess Dulcia MacPherson, a Laurel from the Kingdom of Trimaris. I also happen to be the Baroness of An Crosaire, which is why I've been trying to contact you. My Barony is preparing to do our huge annual demo at the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire (a small medieval faire put on by the city of Gainesville, FL). I am hoping that you'll give me your permission to use a short version of your Tale of Two Tarts article and recipes in a brochure to hand out to kids and adults who participate in our New World vs. Old World Foods game. I think the contrast between the medieval and renaissance versions of the tart, plus the fact that it's a version of an "American" food that everyone should be familiar with, is perfect way to cap off many of the things we'll talk about during the game.

I would absolutely include your copyright and any other information you would like included as well as full credit to you as the author.

Please contact me via FB at Dulcia MacPherson, or via email at countessdulcia@gmail.com
