Home from Paris on Saturday; faculty convocation Monday; department meetings yesterday; finalizing syllabi today. The new semester is taking shape and so is the consolidated institution. First day of fall classes is Monday, August 19–see my “Teaching” page to find out what I’m doing this semester.
I’m also eagerly awaiting the arrival of page proofs for my book The Matrimonial Trap: Eighteenth-Century Women Writers Redefine Marriage (part of Bucknell University Press’s Transits series). After proofing and indexing, the book will go into production and is expected in November.
And believe it or not, we are already rolling on Study Abroad promotion for Summer 2014. Take a look!
