Hope 2010 has started off auspiciously for you and all is well out in Cali! Just wanted to shoot you a quick note with some excellent news - landed a tenure-track assistant professor gig in Fairfield University's Department of Communication, starting this September (will be defending my dissertation this summer at Penn). Couldn't be more psyched about and grateful for this opportunity - great Jesuit school, friendly department, excellent location near NYC and the very great David Gudelunas was the search chair - all good things...
Oh, and I think I owed you a photo from the wedding in October; if still interested, a few snaps here: http://www.channingjohnsonblog.com/2009/11/seaport-hotel-wedding/
Some of you have probably heard, for some this may be new, but I'm taking part in a Relay for Life event which benefits the American Cancer Society. "Dancing with the Idaho Falls Stars" is sure to make me look ridiculous, but it's for a great cause.
If you could help out the cause by donating any amount possible, I would greatly appreciate it.
Here's the link:
Thanks in advance,

He's been working on his doctorate at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, while working as a course developer in their Distance Learning unit. He writes:
In case you haven’t heard already, Julie and I are moving to Bakersfield. Actually, she has already moved and, as usual, I am trying to catch up. She was hired three weeks ago by a non-profit group, Greater Bakersfield Legal Assistance, that provides free legal services to the poor. Julie will be the attorney in charge of a new unit that serves victims of domestic violence. Before law school, Julie managed a battered women’s shelter; ever since, family law has been one of her top interests.
And it's the fulfillment of a dream for both of us. Since we started dating in 2001, we have intended to commit our lives to advocacy for the marginalized. Before we met, each of us had been convicted by the Bible’s preoccupation with justice for the poor and oppressed. Now we are at a point where, as a couple, we are prepared to take significant action.
And also at a point where I need to finish my dissertation.
