Program Notes

My usual monthly (or twice-monthly) post here will have to wait, alas, until early June. My better half and I will be traveling for several weeks, and the end-of-semester grading crunch drained the time I would normally use to finish one or more of my current blog projects. These, which I will endeavor to start posting next month, include:

* A short essay on Rosalba Carriera (1673-1758), the Venetian artist who invented the Rococo style,

* Reflections on David Graeber and David Wengrow's great new essay, "How to Change the Course of Human History,"

* An exploration of the connections between Qing-era Chinese fashion and the Lewis and Clark expedition, 

* and perhaps a word or two about the new book I've got coming out later this month. 

See you in a few weeks.
