    Ambitious schedule! Looks like you will all see and learn much. Good luck on your travels!

    We need to find a way to advertise your blog to the community. I found it only by searching the college site. Maybe start with an email to the Hales Group with the blog link? You may have already done this and I missed it.

    I’m looking forward to reading about your adventures and discoveries, even the “poststructuralist” ones.
