It’s the final Friday of spring break and I feel like the entire week has slipped away before I either recovered or got much done. I suppose holding station before the hectic final weeks of the semester is not a bad situation.
It has well and truly decided to be springtime here in North Dakotaland with temperatures soaring into the 50s during the day and staying in the 20s at night. It makes it good sleeping weather (or so I’ve been told) and fine weather for lazy walks or slightly less lazy runs along the Greenway as the Red River start to flow again and the trees are tinged with green.
It also means college basketball which will provide some background music to my weekend. And Saturday night will feature what might be an entertaining fight between Virgil Ortiz and Maurice Hooker. The NASCAR guys at in Atlanta for the snore before next weeks chaos at Bristol and the Sixers continue to weather the storm without The Process.
I’ll likely take a break from reading this weekend or focus on the little stack of articles that’s accumulating in my “to read” pile and in that spirit, here’s a little gaggle of quick hits and varia:
- Byzantine Glazed Pottery from Argos (10th – first half of the 13th century).
- Digital Data and Data Literacy in Archaeology Now and in the New Decade.
- Dream Nation; 200 years on.
- Dimitris Athanitis and the Uncanny Elegance of the Arcades.
- Reckoning with Whiteness in Scholarly Publishing.
- OER in the time of COVID.
- Did someone say “abandoned villages”? (If yes, go here.)
- More Dead Sea Scrolls.
- A Pushcart Nomination.

- Pharoah Sanders and Sam Shepherd drops next week.
