The week between Christmas and New Years has always seemed like a bonus week to me – a gift when no-one expects business to get done, when you actually have the time to clean up your home a bit more (me? I cleaned the dish drying rack) and ideally tackle a project or two.
While I am working from home this week, I’ll also be plotting two courses I’d like to teach this summer, “Gender in Virtual Worlds” an upper level women’s studies course, and “1960s” an upper level history course. Both will be taught online over 6 week periods this summer. It’s been a while since I returned to the 1960s, but I’m thinking about using my book, “Daniel Shays’s Legacy? Marshall Bloom, Radical Insurgency and the Pioneer Valley as the outline.
What are you going to tackle this week?
