i have been very lucky over the last few years to be able to travel for work.
in 2006 i went to amsterdam for the european social science and history conference.
in 2007 i visited rome for workshops with the international gramsci society, with a slight detour to florence because i could. because i had to. this was followed by a ferry ride to sardinia for the international gramsci society conference.
of course, these were all very important busy conferences to go to, but i did manage a bit of sight seeing. click on the links to see what i thought and did.
in june 2012, i headed back to the US, this time to a conference in baltimore, followed by a whirlwind couple of days in NYC. that trip turned out to be a bit more than i bargained for, but it was fantastic. everytime i go to the US i love it a little bit more, which i find surprising.
but its always good to come home.
