It’s finally feeling a bit like spring out here in North Dakotaland. The temperatures are inching up, trees are slowly turning green, and our rather widely disliked university president has taken a job elsewhere. Classes this semester are officially over, the Phillies are rounding into early season shape, and the Sixers are still in contention. The men’s cricket world cup starts in less than a month and the world is tantalized by a series of intriguing early summer boxing matches that start with Saturday’s Alvarez-Jacobs tilt.
If you are still looking for something to do with all this excitement, I humbly offer some quick hits and varia:
- Kristina Killgrove on Classics and archaeology and Dimitri Nakassis’s response.
- Classics for everyone.
- Advancing feminism in Classics online.
- Classics and the Anthropocene.
- Digitizing the manuscripts of St. Catherine’s.
- Jack Davis.
- Origins and Cultural Heritage at the Met.
- Theoretical Archaeology Group meeting at Syracuse (pdf).
- The comma queen.
- University Title Generator.
- Stanford University Press.
- Trash at ‘Dega.
- Roxane Gay’s Gay Mag.
- Everyday clothes.
- The Slowdown.
- What I’m reading: Anna Kouremenos, eds. Insularity and Identity in the Roman Mediterranean. (2018).
- What I’m listening to: Fat White Family, Serf’s Up.
