For those of you following along at home, here’s the schedule, which begins, I am alarmed to say, a week from today:
- 6 June — fly from EWR to FRA (arriving, of course, 7 June)
- 7 June — train from FRA to Göttingen
- 8-9 June — workshop on Popular Seriality at Lichtenberg-Kolleg, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen
- 10 June — all quiet, save one meeting with a grad student
- 11 June — travel from Göttingen to
DarmstadtFrankfurt to give a talk at the Technische Universität DarmstadtGoethe Universität Frankfurt [Ed 06.09.12: Glad I figured out where I’m going in advance!]
- 12 June — return to Göttingen to give a talk at the Göttingen Center for Digital Humanities
- 13 June — train to FRA; fly from FRA to OPO; some manner of transportation that hasn’t yet been described to me from OPO to Guimarães, Portugal
- 14-15 June — the 16th International Conference on Electronic Publishing, a.k.a. “ElPub,” at which I’ll give a keynote and participate in a panel discussion
- 16-17 June — two days off! In Portugal!
- 18 June — ridiculously early flight out of OPO to FRA; FRA to EWR; EWR to BNA, a.k.a. Nashville, where I will promptly collapse
- 19-20 June — ADE/ADFL Joint Summer Seminar east, where I’ll be giving a talk and leading a discussion group
- 21 June — BNA through IAH to LAX
- 22 June — talk at the Hypercities NEH Summer Institute for Advanced Topics in Digital Humanities at UCLA
- 23 June — the point at which I expect all systems to fail: LAX to EWR to FRA to PRG, a.k.a. Prague, where it will be 24 June and I will be a twitchy mess
- 24 June-14 July — VACATION, WHEREIN I WILL ONLY DO THOSE THINGS I WISH TO DO, AND NOTHING MORE
- 15 July — PRG through MUC to HAM, a.k.a. Hamburg
- 16-20 July — DH 2012 and associated meetings
- 21 July — HAM to EWR
And then I’ll be back in the office on the 23rd, no doubt a bit dazed and disoriented, but extremely happy.
*So I bought that last plane ticket (EWR-FRA-PRG-HAM-EWR) and was all whew, finally done with the travel arrangements! Only to get an email two hours later from the woman booking my travel to attend a three-day workshop at Michigan State at the beginning of August. The moral of which story is never, ever, believe yourself to be done.
