Ups and downs.
I was in probably the most useful seminar so far as specific feedback for everyone's papers that I've ever been in. It was really great that way.
I got to see good folks, from grad school and elsewhere, and that was great.
I felt ever more alienated from Shakespeare stuff here in my NWU home, where I teach more comp than early modern by far. But where there are other good things that I appreciate.
I planned poorly, I think, and rushed in and rushed out. The bad in that is that I spent the whole visit tired. The good in that is that I'm home and got a good and full night's sleep last night, and I get to go to a friend's concert tomorrow which I'm very much looking forward to.
Yeah, this conference always makes it abundantly apparent that I don't get to do enough with Shakespeare. I have to push to find opportunities to do more. It's tough when you're always so busy with everything else.ReplyDelete
I rushed out this morning myself. I'd planned to stay through lunch, but then I decided to leave at around 10:30. I was just ready to get home. I'm back now and feel like I need a nap.
