US trip

by Chris Bertram on April 1, 2004

I’m just back from a trip to the US, which I greatly enjoyed. The main reason for going was the annual conference of the “American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies”: at Boston, where I’d organised a panel which included blogger Chris Brooke of the “Virtual Stoa”: . I also caught an excellent seminar on Rousseau at Columbia given by Fred Neuhouser of Barnard and met up with the “Patrick”: and “Teresa”: Nielsen Hayden for a rather good sushi lunch one day (thanks!). Patrick and Teresa encouraged me enormously when I first started blogging so it was good to meet them in the flesh. More reflections on matters arising as and when, but meanwhile, thanks to everyone who helped to make it a memorable visit.

I’m interested… where did you go for sushi in Boston?

I didn’t: the sushi was in New York.

Hey, if I’d known there were other bloggers at ASECS, I would have tried to meet up.

Maybe next time George! Did you catch the plenary session on Friday? Possibly the worst address by a senior academic figure I’ve ever listened to … and that’s quite an achievement.

Nope, I have to confess that I skipped it.

ASECS 2005? Viva Las Vegas!
