Our Academic Nook post by Dr. Joseph Palis is now up in Behind the Books. Dr. Palis is a Teaching Assistant Professor and Advisor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of North Carolina State University in Raleigh. He also moonlights as a deejay (yes a DJ Professor) at WXYC – Chapel Hill, 89.3 FM @ wxyc.org. He’s usually on during Mondays (not certain about the time though).
Among my beloved friends, I would say that Joseph is among the few who has a prodigious memory when it comes to music, film, and books. I can still recall the many times that we have watched foreign/independent films, exchanged poetry, and discussed music and movies together. It brings me great joy to share his thoughts with you all today.
As we promised, his piece is in keeping with our Everything Dahl and Magical theme. It’s entitled:
Do drop by – we’d love to hear what you think.
When not teaching geography and international studies to college kids, Dr. Joseph Palis collects owls: figurines, key-chains, sock puppets and other materials. He dj’s in a college radio every week and is currently obsessed with early blues and historic recordings. Aside from his love for tiramisu and Southern cuisine, he spends time watching obscure movies and attending loud-music concerts.
