Spring 2018

The Origins Conference at Arizona State has been cancelled, which I regret, but it also enables me to keep my promise to keep my schedule light after last year’s punishing book tour.  I have a single event scheduled for late March;  nothing this summer; and then lots more things come fall.  Stay tuned.  At this hour, this is what’s confirmed for spring:

• March 28.  Western Connecticut State U.
