Me and K'zoo 2010

A few people have asked me privately, and it's true -- I may not be going to K'zoo in 2010. There are a variety of personal forces causing me to drift in that direction, but perhaps the most important professional reason is that for the first time in forever I have no particular piece of research I want to present. I've got research, I'm just not jonesing to take it to K'zoo.

I'm not saying I won't go for sure, but I haven't sent in any paper proposals to sessions, so it's looking unlikely. Don't worry; I've not entered into a post-tenure sloth period.

    I'm having similar qualms about Leeds, though ironically that is at least in part because it appears that this year I am doing Kalamazoo.

  2. I seem to have signed up for K'zoo this year, but I must say it was relaxing to have a year off last year.

  3. I am, as always, of two minds. Seeing folks I like v. the time it takes, particularly when it looks like I'll be doing another trip to London with students immediately afterward.

    Though I ought to mention that I'm still in need of a paper or two for the "Re-Iterating Arthur" panel co-sponsored by the Medieval Popular Culture area of the Popular Culture Association and MEMO [hint, hint, folks -- email laityk (at) strose.edu for details]
