[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!]
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!
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:
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!
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!
feel free to reach out, here or by
email, with any questions about either of these events!
series starts Monday,
are you working on this Fall?
