George Eastman House grant
I received some great news this week; I was awarded a grant to fly to Rochester and spend a week or two at the George Eastman House researching gum printing. It is such a wonderful feeling when your university believes in what you are doing! Especially since I am in the arts and not in the field of science, where the usual funding money flows to (MSU reached the 100 million mark this year).
Since I teach a full load next semester, Tom and I will probably fly in there the first week of January, if all goes according to plan. Is there anyone on the list who lives there/any alt group who will be having a meeting there at that time? I know this is doubtful, right after the holidays, but it'd be great to get together an alt list group! Daytime I will be busy at the library, but it closes at 5:00.
I figured since RIT is in the area, there have got to be some great photo things going on. And I assume Toronto is close by? Close by Montana standards, anyway--maybe 3 hours? I don't know if a rental car can be taken across the border, though.
One more question: anyone on the list doing/wanting to do German translation, could you email me **offlist**? My translator had a baby.
PS My husband doesn't quite put this trip into the "wonderful vacation" category--no palm trees, more snow there than in MT but we're not skiing, etc.etc. heheheh--I think I'll bill it as a "retreat".
