Some plans for the autumn

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

It’s been a while since my last post but¬†my excuse is that is has been a quiet summer and there haven’t been any major developments in the project. That said, I haven’t had my vacation yet and have actually¬†spent much of the summer in the office, so a few things have been done.¬†An article and a book chapter have been finished and hopefully this will be published in not too long. Probably not until the first half of next year though, things take time. Otherwise I’ve done some reading about immigration in the middle ages,¬†and done different¬†preparations for the autumn. Contrary to normal, I have a somewhat busy autumn ahead of me with a¬†fair bit¬†of travelling. I will be giving two talks about my project, one in Innsbruck at the GMI and one in Oslo. The talk in Oslo is part of an initiative by the Norwegian Research Council where they want the SAMKUL research to reach a wider audience by offering talks at¬†different ministry departments. The idea is that a department can choose from a list of SAMKUL topics to be presented to them when they¬†find it appropriate. I have signed up for this initiative, so now it’s only to see if anyone books a talk about my immigration project. Otherwise, I’ll be going to Denmark to do the last of the enamel sampling, to Madrid with the institute, and to London for a seminar. I¬†will probably¬†write about these¬†different events when the time comes. It should be a¬†good autumn and I’m also¬†hoping the first¬†analysis results will come in during the coming months, something I’m very much looking forward to.

But first I’m off to Italy¬†for three weeks with the family. The panama is packed and I’m praying for some¬†sun and¬†better temperatures.
