I’ll also announce the list here when we get it all together to post at http://www.berksconference.org and berks.umn.edu. Liz–thanks for New Kid–she’s a reader and commentor here. Perhaps she’ll chime in? (And I’ll pass your comments on to Peg!)

Ortho–sorry–you’ll have to wait until 2011 for the next Berks conference! (Thanks for spreading the word at your blog about this post and CFB!) That’s the heartbreak–it’s really hard when you’re a grad student or junior scholar to 1) figure out the deadlines and the cycle for these conferences and 2) submit a proposal about your work 15-18 months in advance of the conference. The Berks is an all-volunteer organization, without the paid staff that the AHA, OAH, and MLA have to help organize their mammoth annual conferences. (Our conference is mammoth, with 1,150 people on the program this year. I wonder if we should try to meet more often but have a smaller conference? The Berks may be at a crossroads…)

But, anyone is welcome to attend the 2008 Berks–you don’t have to be on the program. See the links under “Berkshire Conference” at left for more information. For those of you interested in the next Berks: they’ll probably pick the next site and conference theme next winter, and the deadline for proposals will probably be sometime in the winter or early spring of 2010. Watch for announcements at berksconference.org!

at http://blog.iblamethepatriarchy.com/

Will you (or the Berks) offer a list of the blogs that you compile?

She is a medieval historian and writes a lot about teaching and academia. http://newkidonthehallway.typepad.com/

I am looking forward to presenting at the Berks this year (my first time) and I’ve been enjoying your blog.

(And for the record Peg Strobel is my heroine)

My blog is not well written or ever on point. In fact, it’s pointless.

But I am so happy to learn that the Berks has a dance. I didn’t know that. Now that I know, I will be sure to submit a paper or try to form a panel for next year because I love to dance!

Please refer others to me so that we can expand it!

And yes, we’ll all be dancin’ fools. (Although I wonder that a few dance videos on YouTube would bring this quaint tradition to an end…? It’s kind of like a fraternity hazing–when those things get taped, the trouble begins.)

re: the dance — it’s back. Now I can look like a fool again. . .
