Routine takes its toll. I work for home office, although I really try to cut the hours as my academic projects are lingering. I try to go for a walk each day and most days I succeed, even if this is just a walk along Norwottuck Rail Trail (a 11-mile bicycle/pedestrian paved path linking Northampton, Hadley,. Amherst and Belchertown). Only today I finally got to finish the last class in academic research course. Next projects are in line
The idea of the workshop was to give an opportunity for junior scholars to meet and discuss their papers. We read each other’s papers, and there were two senior scholars – discussants, who have their feedback. This was worth a billion! To have your paper read by an expert in the field, and other scholars, who have got their impressions, questions, comments – it was very valuable. I have downloaded 18 (!) articles based on the recommendations and comments I heard.
Similar workshops will take place in future as well, it looks like that both online and in person. I strongly encourage to follow the homepage of CJLS and apply for the next one!
