I'm headed out early tomorrow for SAA, which is in Atlanta this year.
I have mixed feelings about conferences. On one hand, it's great to go and see Shakespeare folks, talk Shakespeare and early modern lit.
On the other hand, it reminds me how isolated I feel intellectually here, and how many resources just aren't anywhere near.
It's great to get away, especially to somewhere warmer.
But it's also a pain to make arrangements for classes to be covered, plants to be brought in/taken out, travel, and to pick up the extra expense, because NWU never quite covers everything.
At any rate, I'm heading out. I'm not taking my computer, so I won't be posting.
