The first day of registration

I’m shocked–SHOCKED!–that, after the first full day of registration, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen course has 9 students, while Digital Literary Studies has zero. How could a comic-based course possibly be more popular than a theoretical introduction to humanities computing, one which fulfills *no* requirements for the major?

A free month’s subscription to this blog to readers who can guess the gender demographics of the 9 (judging by names).

(I’ll freely concede that it’s not healthy to be this interested in my enrollments. Nonetheless . . . )

UPDATE (11/12): One week later: 28 students in League, against 2 (!) in Digital Literary Studies.  *Sigh* . . .

    and I am stuck waiting until the 13th!

    Sigh.

    Well, it helps to know the professor.

    On the plus side, plenty of good seats still available in DLS, which is, after all, closer to your major.

    Closer to my major seems to be an understatement, but agreed wholly.

    Hey now, easy on the demographic jokes. If it fit my schedule, I would be in there, too. (But then, I’m not much of a girl when it comes to books. Cyberpunk, anyone?)

    One of those students is my fault . . .

    Mama A: As you well remember, there was a pretty skewed demographic in the cyberpunk class . . . It looks like this course will rival that one in distribution.

    It’s just funny, because almost all English classes are majority female, and usually by a pretty wide margin.
