Most downloaded, now Free: The Modern Career of the Oldest Profession

My article on metaphor theory and the history of the phrase “oldest profession” was the second “most downloaded” social science article for Palgrave in 2015. Now it’s FREE for everyone! I wrote about it here.

I’m going to credit the bump from the ‘students’ of Hot Dog University, a collaboration between Belt Magazine and Happy Dog. they sponsor a series of liberal arts talks. Giving a talk there on Nov 11th of 2014 was a blast – there were over 100 people,the Q&A went for 45 minutes and the questions were smart and sharp, and I got bought more beers than I could drink.
