In totally unrelated news, I was invited to speak at a conference in London this fall on my much earlier work on Queen Anna of Denmark, the Scottish court in the 1590s, and the early Jacobean court. Before I made the transition to my current research interests, I was all about queens consort, all the time (wow, that's the geekiest thing I've ever written).
I am bummed though because, as amazing of an opportunity as it sounds, this conference is happening a few weeks after we return from Scotland, a few days after I leave for another conference in Banff, and a week before I leave for Arkansas to speak at another conference. So I think I have to turn it down...boo!
