Yesterday morning we ran three panels on digital teaching methods for early modern studies, sponsored by the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies. Great presentations by Michael Ullyot, Tom Lolis, Sarah Neville, Tara Lyons, Jason Boyd, David Stymeist, Patricia Fumerton, Eric Nebeker, and Christine McWebb. We generated some good discussion and I got to talk about My boy Tarlton. I'll post more info later, but it was particularly gratifying to hear another speaker in an unrelated session refer to our work (never had that happen before!)
Sunny Sunday morning. The temperature is finally dropping below 80. And the leaves are changing. I still can't get used to autumn in the south ... No outdoors for me, though. The lists and stacks and deadlines just grow and loom. It's not enough that there are seventy-five wiki entries waiting for me to grade them; a thirty-five page article accepted by ROMARD needs to be edited and resubmitted in ten days (thanks for reminding me - have to contact the Newberry and request permission to use their title page from A Game at Chess in the article). more "I’ve gone compartmental"
