ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

Back from DC

(1) I got accepted to the small NJ conference, so that will officially make it 4 conferences 4 weekends in a row. Yee haw! They are:
Oct 12-14: Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy (SPEP) in Philadelphia (my paper: on rights, a la Fichte and Hegel)
Oct 20-22: Ancient & Mediaeval Phil Conference in NY (the same one I used to help organize) (my paper: on Aristotle and Fichte on the state's role in educating its citizens toward virtue)
Oct 26-29: American Catholic Philosophical Association (ACPA) in Ohio (60 miles outside of Columbus OH) (my paper: Fichte and Husserl on how we get to truth through communication with others)
Nov. 4: New Jersey Regional Philosophical Association (paper on
feminist conceptions of relational autonomy.)

(2) Had a fantastic time in DC. It was really relaxing to be away, and I really liked what I saw of the city. Yay quiet subway! Of course, once I got back to NYC, folks round here who've lived in DC did their best to burst my bubble & remind me about all the bad elements of DC (like how the nice quiet subway with its nice padded seats doesn't actually serve the poorer portions of the city, and rather is aimed at making life easier for commuters from the suburbs) but I blocked my ears and sang "lalala" until they stopped. I was on vacation, dammit. I get to think about economic deprivation every other single day.

(3) How are y'all liking Megan's posts? where did all the comments go? Was I so quiet for a while that everybody left?
