I'm in transit from Ithaca to Rochester NY, having just given a talk on the Green Children for the Quod Libet series at Cornell. Remarkably, about half the audience arrived dressed in some shade of green. It was like St Patrick's day as celebrated by the non-Irish in an autumnal upstate New York setting. And without the green booze. There was, however, a very nice wine and cheese reception, at which this picture was snapped using my cell phone. That's me and Carol V. Kaske. She is wearing a dark but verdant shirt. I, likewise, am wearing green.
Despite the fact that my paper had been swiped along with my laptop, somehow I muttered something semi-comprehensible (I think). It has been great to be in a place with such a lively, engaged group of medievalists that spans undergraduates to graduate students to junior and senior faculty.
