Because that is exactly what I will be doing–or rather, where I will be!
My first year of graduate school has officially ended, thereby my summer has finally begun!
I have not been able to go on vacation for some time, due to various financial and personal circumstances, but this school year certainly warrants a brief departure from the monotony of new york city. so, i’m escaping new york city for the entire month of june 🙂 I may seem gloat-y, but, fuck it, I deserve it. I need a break 🙂 For now, my homework is practicing French, Dutch, Spanish and learning some Catalan, since I will not be speaking much English for over a month! Here’s my (tentative) schedule:
27 to 30 Mai: Delaware and Washington D.C.–I will be attending one day of the NAFSA conference to network, find Ph.D information, etc.
2-10 Juin: Montréal, QUÉBEC–this is my second home: I will be conducting some light research at queer and feminist archives, and (hopefully) sitting in on the Queer Feminisms Symposium at McGill University. But, it will not be all work 🙂 my Dutch roomie will be meeting us in Montréal from 6 – 8 June!
11-30 Juin: L’EUROPE!
Paris, FRANCE will be my home base, but I will be making day and weekend short trips to:
Fez or Marrakesh, MOROCCO
30 Juin: Arrive back to Montréal, QUÉBEC–
1 Juillet: La fête nationale du Canada!
2 Juillet : Return to NYC
3 to 6 Juillet: Independence Day in Dover, DELAWARE
and for the rest of the summer…who knows?
If any of you are in these cities, please send me a note. I’ve been to most of these places, but it is always nice consulting with a local or expat about must-sees’ 🙂
I am so looking forward to it! 🙂
and, btw, I will definitely be photo-blogging this séjour au QUÉBEC et L’EUROPE!
