Well, the spring semester has ended, and although teaching continues through June and July most of us are away doing fieldwork right now.
Check out the New Buffalo Blog for the field projects run by Prof. Sev Fowles in and around Taos. Taos has its own history of connections with New York, in the form of Mabel Dodge Luhan's artists' salon. Great to think that the links are being maintained!
Meanwhile others of us will send periodic posts from the field over the next few months.
