I’m Back

Well, obviously, I have not posted on this blog since last October. Ten months have gone by, during which I did an enormous amount of research in New Orleans and had a great time living there as well. Now I’m back in the Northeast (much to my regret) — we are moving into a new Princeton apartment in 3 weeks. I’ve also just given the second of two conference papers, this one at the annual SHEAR conference, which came out of my New Orleans year of research.

Now I’m looking at the intimidating prospect of trying to make sense of all the stuff I’ve accumulated, and starting to write an actual dissertation based on it. And I’m thinking of resuming Crescent City Confidential as one way of keeping myself on track during the process.
