December: That month demarcating a pause in the academic year. Holiday concerts, juries to perform or hear, final projects to complete or evaluate, exams to take or grade: these are some of the academic rituals that await us this short month. I personally look forward to some time off and to reading by a fire — that is, after I’ve finished grading!
