Spring has sprung here on the Northern Plains, and after a couple of grey days, we’re expected to kiss 60 degrees this afternoon. I’m sure that my concentration will begin to waver, and even as the days get longer, I’ll get less done.
To get things started, I did a little interview about the Bakken Goes Boom: Oil and the Changing Geographies of Western North Dakota this week on Prairie Public Radio’s Main Street. Check it out here. We also have a cool video.
In the meantime, I’ll do all I can to distract my readers with a gaggle of quick hits and varia:
- David Pettegrew on the churches of Corinth and St. Kodratos.
- Hesperia 85.1 is out!
- More Hagiography: Holy men of Mt. Athos.
- Abandonment in the Roman Empire at the Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference.
- Communism, Hellenism, and Blegen.
- Maybe Byzantines went to church underwater.
- Teaching as trouble shooting.
- Innovation for what?
- Academics need to write better or whatever.
- The vanishing American rest stop.
- The university press and the community.
- More on the cost of publishing a monograph.
- Nice interview with Dr. Suzzanne Kelley PhD from the North Dakota State University Press.
- An alternative to dreaded Comic Sans.
- Printing out Wikipedia.
- This is why we don’t let Milo drive my truck.
- When Prince met Paul Westerberg.
- What I’m reading: Hesperia 85.1, of course!
- What I’m listening to: Night Beats, Who Sold My Generation.
