Istanbul, Turkey As academics, we are expected to be doing two things on a regular basis: to read a lot and to write a lot on topics related to our profession.

Mary Churchill’s recent post made me wonder if I’m cut out for research and academia. She writes of not wanting to "unplug" from looking at life through her academic lens (and loving it), even while on vacation.
