Weekend in Raleigh

Still recovering from the conference I attended this weekend (yes, Saturday night was a late, late night). Covergences was unlike most conferences in that it was limited to a smaller group of, I believe, nineteen people. And instead of having several sessions running concurrently, we only had one session at a time. The result was that the papers could provoke conversations that would re-emerge in later panels or over dinner and drinks that night. Thanks again to David and Christa for all of their hard work in putting this thing together.

I'll try to jump back into some of the interesting blog conversations that have been developing since I've been gone, but I'm still shaking the cobwebs a bit, and now I also have to start thinking ahead to next weekend's stop on my fall tour.

Hey! You met my pal Jenny Bay! Sounds like it was a great conference; most of my best conference experiences have been at small gatherings like that, where a conversation is able to develop over the course of a few days.

Good luck with the rest of the fall tour. I'll be sorry to miss you in the ATL, but we'll certainly cross paths again soon.

I had several great conversations with Jenny! Yes, too bad we'll miss each other here in Atlanta. Good luck on your paper.

and you met MY colleague and friend Rachel Reidner. We were just talking today about ways that her participation at Convergences had her thinking about our little program here. How does a body get in on this brilliant little colluquy?

My name was suggested by two of the other participants, and I think that's how most of the other participants were chosen. I very much enjoyed meeting Rachel, by the way. I've been mulling over the talks at Convergences all day. Some of the discussions should inform an essay I'm finishing this week, so the conference really seems to be paying off.

Basically I just got lucky.
