Snow days

New York City is gearing up for what may be a very big blizzard over the weekend. At my local Brooklyn supermarket: shovels, salt, and sleds!

It'll be a weekend of shoveling, salting and sledding in another register for me: the new semester begins next week, and my three course syllabi aren't yet finished. Two are repeats/updates, and, while they've been on the backburner of my mind (is there such a place?) for the last weeks, I've only recently started thinking concretely about the updating, which needs to take into account what was learned from the last iterations (Fall 2011 and Spring 2013, respectively), new material in the field, the new terrain of issues in 2016 - and the contours of the semester's schedule. Wish me happy sledding!
