University of New Brunswick, Saint John (Yesterday)
Apologies for my absence on Wednesday, I went over to Saint John (a town settled by Loyalists escaping the terror of the American Republicans) to give a paper on children's literature. It's very strange giving a paper when this embedded in research. My brain still feels a lot like a chemistry experiment: ideas bond, divide in disgust, bond on other lines and are generally still pretty confused about which argument-molecules they wish to become. Mostly, I discussed the questions I was trying to ask, and how I was hoping to ask them. My audience didn't fall asleep.
There is a very kind report on the event posted by Scribblingwoman.
