I, for one, really love seeing students’ creative and academic work and can’t wait to see what you’ve got!

In other news, my professor invited me to observe a symposium running today and tomorrow. The symposium is being hosted by SFU and is on the topic of “Can there be a World Humanities?” I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to attend, since it’s by invitation only and is completely in line with some of the questions I’ve been exploring academically.

It’s been really fascinating so far, not least to see what a scholarly conversation in a formal setting actually looks like. To my relief, I’m actually keeping up with most of the papers — only one out of six went over my head (and I know I’m not the only one who felt that way!). Lots of interesting thoughts I’m gleaning from here, and am looking forward to the more open discussion portion happening tomorrow.

(And lunch! Lunch was great!)
