Conferences are exhausting! But so worthwhile. I will post more later--still so much to do that I left partially undone--but it is nice to be back home, even though the adrenaline and motivation to work hard is something I'm going to try and hold onto.
Besides presenting the paper, I also spoke with three publishers who are interested in various projects I'm working on, was asked to write two papers, spoke to friends about doing a panel for next year's conference and got to spend some quality time with dear friends like Lisa who I see way too infrequently. I also met some great new scholars and reconnected with many friends and colleagues. Overall, this one was a success even with the sleep deprivation and surfeit of very unhealthy foods.
