Conferences, appearances, talks

  2. Tripp Fuller mentioned the possibility of a Homebrewed Christianity interview on his podcast.  So, tba.  I need to follow up with him about that.
  3. Philadelphia Summer School in Continental Philosophy (August 9th), link HERE.
  4. P.E.S.T. (annual summer symposium, August, date tba)
I am noticing that with alot of the above, my projects take some time to unfold, whether a year, or even two years in some instances.  Funny, but even with all things online the research/writing/publication pipeline tends to move at its own pace.  I suppose that's a good thing, because then I get a few months of hindsight while things are appearing to determine what shape my research profile will take in the future.
