We are back from over three weeks of traveling! Jax was such a good sport and didn’t seem to mind being whisked from place to place, visiting five cities in three countries in less than a month.

Our first stop was Oxford, the reason for our trip over the Atlantic. I gave a paper (based on a chapter in my dissertation) at the Society for French Studies Annual Conference. It was a pleasure meeting other scholars of France and even reconnecting with a former graduate school colleague. I had to bring Jax to registration the first day, and to say good-bye on the last day as well (Seth was in London doing some work on those days, coming to Oxford in the middle for my presentation day). Everyone was understanding, although if the weather wasn’t so wonderful, I’m not sure bringing a 9-month-old to an academic conference would ever be a good idea!

In all, a great three days in this famous capitol of learning.

  1. I’m glad you had such a nice time and that Jax was such a good sport. I love the green tree picture, the one of the boys in the grass and the one of Jax in front of that awesome door!

  2. I miss Oxford – such a lovely city to live in! I’m glad the trip went well – and that Jax enjoyed his first academic conference! (Wow! I really want to hear how that went!)
