A few days ago, on New Year’s Eve, I completed my #365DayChallenge of posting one image a day on Instagram. So, for now, I’m taking a little break from social media.
I’m very excited about what 2018 will bring . . . I am currently working on revisions for one new book and four essays, and I hope to complete a translation project started a few years on the poetry of Belgian modernist poet, essayist, and art critic Marcel Lecomte. This winter, I’ll also complete the final touches on my dissertation on Francis Hopkinson and publishing in the Early American Republic. If this wasn’t enough, I am editing a special issue of Textshop Experiments, due for release in January, and am preparing for the a series of new announcements related to that journal soon. I have a lighter load of teaching this semester to make all of this possible: I’m currently scheduled for a few surveys in Early American History and one new course entitled, “Cabaret Unpacked,” which examines Art, Design, Music, Theatre, and Literature during the 1930s and specifically the rise of the Nazi Party in Germany.
In the meantime, please enjoy the 365+ days on Instagram compilation below…
Wishing a very Happy New Year to all of my readers and visitors!
