Do you know a prof who can’t hold his/her liquor and gets sloppy at departmental functions? Have you ever been pressured to drink, or drink more, by your colleagues? What role does alcohol play in your scholarly life (at conferences, for example)? Are you a rare non-drinker in a booze-soaked sea of questionable behavior — and are you ostracized for your choices? If you have drinking stories, about yourself or a colleague or an ex-colleague or just someone you met at a conference once, I want to know them and I want to know them NOW. Comment here, email, Tweet or professional-Facebook-page Facebook me.
Season’s Greetings, you drunk fucks!
(Oh, also, aside from this call for anecdotal “color” I am also doing some real research about alcohol (ab)use in academia; have found some good resources already, but would also appreciate moar links to papers, studies, stats, etc.)
