The older I get, the more I dislike travel. The only really good thing about it (other than the destination) is a chance to get some quiet and relatively uninterrupted reading time.
As I head east today to a conference in Washington, DC, I’m taking with me the most recent issue of Ploughshares, Juliet Lapidos’s newish book Talent, Eric Olin Wright’s How to be Anti-Capitalist in the Twenty-First Century (2019) and Laurent Olivier and Marek Tamm’s Rethinking Historical Time: New Approaches to Presentism (2019).
If you want to read the paper that I’m giving in DC go here.
