Very entertaining interview with Project Runway's Tim "Make it Work" Gunn on mentoring in the NY Times.
Last fall, in an instantly viral Tumblr feed called “Academic Tim Gunn,” two Penn State academics imagined the style guru as a dissertation committee member with advice tailored to the humanities, including: “I want you to be cognizant of not overwriting this,” “That conclusion is such wretched excess” and “Your theoretical framework is Foucault, Derrida and Deleuze? That’s not avant-garde. That’s 80s.”
No Director community meetings tomorrow.
