|Sarah Palin is not at the Berkshire Conference|
Because of a variety of appointments, I didn't make any panels this morning, but the conference has a lively book exhibit and numerous common spaces in the Campus Center where knots of old friends are gathering, and editors chat up potential and signed authors. Supported by the free WiFi, and surrounded by an invisible Bell of Silence, scholars are finishing up their comments and papers. The coffee isn't perfect, but it's good. All is well.

Other panels that are looking good for a Radical sighting today are:
"Researching and Interpreting Feminist Activism of the 1960s abd 1970s: An Intergenerational Roundtable," with Judy Wu, Ros Baxandall, Marisela Chavez, Amy Kesselman, Jessica Lee, Barbara Ransby and Sheila Rowbotham. Cape Cod Lounge; and
"Plenary: The Sex of Geopolitics," with Anjali Arondekar, Afsaneh Najmabadi, Geeta Patel, Carol Vance and Siobhan Somerville. Bowker Auditorium.
Thanks to those of you who are introducing yourselves randomly: keep coming up to say hi -- that's what the Berks is about, but it is particularly nice to see someone who says "Hi, I usually comment on your blog as....." If you are reading this before 5:30 on Friday June 10, don't forget to show up to meet the bloggers at the Grad Lounge of the Lincoln Campus Center. Although Historiann won't make it, there are confirmed appearances by Clio Bluestocking, Another Damned Medievalist, Janice Liedl, and Knitting Clio.
