Hey, what do you know? The post re-appeared!
Students and the kids have asked what Kalamazoo is like (my adult friends shudder too much to think what 3,000 medievalists gathering on a university campus might be like to ask), so here come a few super short posts pecked out on my iPhone (and as soon as I figure out how to post images, I will). It's swell here! Spartan rooms (I know I should say medieval), lushly green campus, brilliant people whose books and articles you've read, the occasional nun or monk. The geese on campus will get you, though, so watch out!! It's the possibilities of highly specific knowledge that draw me: Byzantine porridge, the plow, forest law, that one verse in _The Romance of the Rose_. So I'm off!
