Class of 2011 Frame of Reference

Just for giggles, a list of cultural-historical items likely never experienced by the freshman class of 2011, complements of Beloit College. The first one is a killer: “What Berlin wall?” Of course, many of the assistant professors I help with their grant applications can’t name the Fab Four (& often have no idea to whom I am referring). Sigh.

    I am trying to figure out how you weave a reference to the Beatles into a grantsmanship discussion.

    “OK. The study section is just like the screaming girls, and you need to make sure you are Paul and not Ringo.”

    Usually following the blank look I get when I ask if they were enjoying Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (NOT the William Shatner version!!!) when they wrote their specific aims. Something like that. But I very much like your imagery, too, and will keep it in mind for future use.🙂 – writedit
