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.
