I am extremely pleased that Iowa State University approved my request to take my first-ever sabbatical this fall semester. I will be spending the bulk of my time away working on a book or two. I have a multitude of ideas that are extremely eager to get out of my head and into publication!
In addition to my writing, I also will have time to do a little bit of traveling, in the fall as well as next spring and summer. So I'm looking for some interesting opportunities, particularly chances for me to learn and/or teach in places that I've never been before. If there are people / places / programs that I should go see in action, or events for which I should consider attending / presenting, please let me know! Right now my schedule for next year is almost completely wide open. [Note: depending on what the opportunity is, I might need assistance with travel funding!]
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions that you have!
