I got back from Buffalo last night. It was a fun trip for the most part. I got to see Niagara Falls for the first time, and found out that a private island on the St. Laurence River is cheaper than a house in California.
So far, no interest on that Mazarinade wiki. I hope someone finds it useful anyway. I started TAing for a Latin American history course today, which was rather busy because I unexpectedly found out that I was leading 2 sections this evening. I pulled it off with my usual tact and grace (please realize that that is ironic).
I may be joining the UCSB branch of the Making Publics project. You can find more info on that here: http://makingpublics.mcgill.ca. It’s based out of McGill University in Canada. They’re looking more into publishing and reading networks this year, so I figured that my work was right up their alley. My project doesn’t quite address the “publics” as a concept, but I think that that’s okay as long as I am addressing at least part of their question.
I was hoping to get some work on Mabbott done today, but instead I spent it running around doing TA-related tasks. Tomorrow I think I’ll do some work on the ballad project (http://emc.english.ucsb.edu/ballad_project). Maybe this weekend will have time for Mabbott?
