Carrie and I both got fellowships to do a four week digital humanities institute at USC. So we’ll be heading down, and hopefully spending about six weeks in LA from 1 July-15 August. Now we just need to find a place to stay. The LA trip is great for several reasons: the compare/contrast with northern California, the chance to see LA friends, the chance to extend my comparative burrito studies project, and the chance to extend our sabbatical travel a little longer.

We’ll get back to Montreal two weeks before the first day of class. That will be a little stressful in terms of getting set up again, but our colleagues tell us re-entry is hell, so maybe a “pull the band-aid off fast” approach is better.

Officially our sabbaticals end September 1st, and my first teaching is at 11:30am on that day (COMS 608: Sound Studies). I am tempted to throw a party the night of the 31st, just to eek out every last bit of awesomeness.

  1. Of course, Prince is playing 21 nights at the Forum if you’re looking for some fun(k).

  2. Hopefully we can catch up when you are at USC! Are there any Annenberg fellows at the institute you will be working at?
