It’s almost the start of the spring semester here in North Dakotaland and we’ve been greeted with spring time temperatures that have soared into mid-30 and might just kiss the big 4-0. Even as I revel in the warmth of an early summer, I can’t help but feel a little jealous of my colleagues in San Diego who are enjoying the balmy weather and collegial comradery of the annual Archaeological Institute of America meeting.
I suspect my friends and colleagues at the AIAs will be plenty busy with convivial pursuits, but for those of you enjoying the onset of spring elsewhere, here are some quick hits and varia:
- A guide to pitching your book at a conference.
- Unsolicited advice for junior people at a Classics Conference.
- Pseudo Archaeology and television.
- 2019 American School of Classical Studies publication catalogue.
- Two books on the Greek diaspora.
- Teaching the Ancient Mediterranean beyond the Syllabus.
- Midwestern History is on the Map!
- Territory Acknowledgement.
- 50 best podcasts.
- Antihumanism in Larry Potter.
- What I’m reading: … manuscripts for The Digital Press and North Dakota Quarterly …
- What I’m listening to: Sun Ra, Lanquidity.
