I’m presently at the airport en route to Germany. I’ll spend a few days in Heidelberg attending a workshop on genre in Late Antique poetry: http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/md/philfak/skph/workshop_modulations_and_transpositions.pdf. There will be three papers on Gregory of Nazianzus! I won’t be presenting anything but I’m definitely excited to hear the papers and meet some new faces. And of course, there’s the whole Germany during December thing. I know it’ll be enchanting. I’ll also travel to Munich to see the LMU and meet the professor with whom I might be working next year, should a fellowship opportunity work out.
