I just came back from two weeks on the road, and am more than a little bushed. However, there are a few things I want to share here:
* If you haven’t seen it already, this is my latest for Vitae on the importance faculty organization.
* I just wrote this for the Academe blog about what I was doing on Monday.
* Speaking of the AAUP, I am now officially a District One representative on the AAUP’s national council. [I’d link, but they haven’t updated the website yet so you’ll just have to take my word on it.]
* Yesterday, I got the first blurb for Refrigerator:
“Does life exist without refrigerators? For most of us, the answer is no. How this common kitchen appliance achieved its indispensable status in less than a century is an amazing tale filled with surprising twists and unexpected connections. Refrigerator is a delight to read. Bravo!”

The book will be available in September.
