Anyways, this is what I wore to work before racing home on a Friday to change into my camping gear and hit the road for a few nights at beautiful Rock Lake, about 4 hours north from where I live. The four hour drive afforded me ample time to duck into a few academic books I’ve been hoarding for the past few months, including an edited collection about the Tudors and Stuarts on film, which I had great fun finally getting into. I always wanted to design a class around representations of the past on film as an entry point into a larger discussion of the uses and abuses of history and the ethical responsibilities of the historian, so it was a great read.
Camping itself was likewise delightful. It was a bit cold but the hiking was beautiful and I had a great time relaxing and laughing and drinking with friends. I’m a bit sad that it was my last camping trip until next year.
Are you a camping fan?
Also, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter or Facebook (and, if you don't, check out the links on the sidebar), then you probably know I'm currently in Connecticut and NYC visiting my alma mater, hitting up a conference, and visiting some of my grad school friends. I'm having an amazing time thus far and will be posting more on that when I arrive home next weeks.
