It's All Academic   www.davidflemingsite.com   


Welcome to "It's All Academic," a website serving many functions for over a decade. It started as support for the book pictured to the right; then was devoted entirely to topics related to higher education. The "recent academic blog" category below may hold academic ponderings, personal observations or original poetry. During the late spring and summer of 2020, the website featured the 365 Artists in 365 Days series (as further below). That was resurrected in late Spring 2022, but without daily commitment.  Lots of archives to the left.
