Getting messages from professors around country about how our panel on public scholarship changed their lives. In the language of one person, reinforced their passion to do work to serve the greater good. We need more spaces to talk abt the “why”of our profession.

protip - FOLLOW UP! Make time to follow up with folks you met, heard, or talked to at the conference. Depending on your relationship, send a handwritten note, a email, a text, or a DM. Keep it short and sweet. Networking works!

LOTS of talk about deconstructing white, cis, male, elite spaces here but not a lot of support at sessions putting those things on the ground in our field

Tears in the audience’s eyes after describes her “separation” from Wheaton. This panel on public religion scholars is raw. Personal stories of death threats, rape threats, and our institutions not protecting their public scholars.

Takeaways from : -Public scholarship gains momentum (though there are many publics) -Gender panel parity improving (though still a fair share of mansplaining) -Interreligious work is here to stay (though plenty of divides b/n scholars-activists) -Denver is dry

So I've been seeing some discussion over on about tipping housekeepers. You should do that! And make sure you do it daily, not just at the end of your stay -- you might not have the same housekeeper every day.

Exhausted from I sent my partner & kid to my in-laws in Buffalo for T-day without me. Instead I slept a ton, walked my dog, practiced yoga, and ate vegan. It was awesome but when I tell ppl they are like, really? You abandoned your family for T-day?

Heading home from Denver today. It’s been a treat to get to know these guys as my conference housemates; looking forward to converging in San Diego for SBL 2019 (hopefully at a less dodgy Airbnb this time round 🤞)
