[This week we start a new semester, one I desperately hope will feel a bit more settled and positive than the last few. To that end, for my annual Fall previews I’ve highlighted something I’m especially looking forward to in each class, leading up to this weekend update on my current book project and other Fall plans!]
First things first: the update on Two Sandlots: Baseball, Bigotry, and the Battle for America continues to be of the “watch this space” variety. My awesome agent Suzy Evans and I are working diligently to find a home for the book, and I promise y’all will be the first to know when I’ve got good news to share!
But as ever, that’s only one of the many irons in my Fall fire, and in particular I wanted to highlight and invite y’all to a couple of upcoming events put on by organizations I’m very proud to remain part of and active in:
--On Tuesday 9/27 at 4pm, my Scholars Strategy Network Boston co-leaders Natasha Warikoo and Tiffany Chenault and I will be hosting a Zoom conversation about the MA Fair Share Amendment. State legislators, activists, and educators will all be part of the conversation—register here to join us!
--And on Saturday 11/12, the New England American Studies Association will host its Fall 2022 Colloquium at Clark University in Worcester. I’m so glad that the NEASA Colloquiums, which I created way back in 2011, continue, and hope you’ll join us to talk all things diversity, equity, and inclusion—in the classroom, in American Studies, in New England, and beyond!
Please feel free to reach out, here or by email, with any questions about either of these events!
Next series starts Monday,
PS. What are you working on this Fall?
