I have neglected this blog somewhat of late. There are a number of reasons for this. The main reason is a change in job from lecturing to a solely research role. This change has absorbed much of my time recently. It also means that I have been spending more time thinking about recent developments in HE rather than the ancient world. I expect that future blogposts will reflect this change. I plan to write more on Classics teaching and learning in particular.
Another explanation for the absence of blogging is that I have recently signed a contract for my first book, which will be aimed at a general audience. All being well, it should be published in 2014. Researching and writing accounts for most of my spare time at the moment. I hope that I will be able to use this blog as a forum for some of my thinking about the topics I will be covering.
Aside from the new job and book, 2013 looks set to be a busy year. I have a couple of conference papers in the pipeline and am organizing a panel for the Classical Association conference. I also have a couple of research trips planned linked to the book. In terms of this blog, I hope to cover a broad range of topics - and post more regularly!
