I spent some time this morning talking to English departments in Chicago, checking to see what, if any, adjunct work might be available for me. A mixed bag, it looks like, since a lot of departments aren't hiring this year, but sometime today or tomorrow I'll send in a bunch of resumes; there's no reason not to at least have them on file. I'm honestly not sure how much teaching I want to do this next year -- Kevin and I need to talk about finances and such, either in Zurich or after we get back. Maybe I'll teach a class -- maybe I'll teach several. All a bit up in the air at the moment. And I'd still like to get to Sri Lanka to do some research, and I still need to learn enough Spanish to pass my language exams, and doing both of those and still graduating this spring may be tricky. Not impossible, especially if I go to Sri Lanka in January or so and do the language stuff this fall, but still, quite possibly tricky. And all requiring money. We'll see.
