Wow, it’s been a while since I posted. This thesis business caught me off guard, and work, travel, and life combined to shove blogging into the background. I’ll work on this. In the meantime, here are a couple of Motown teaser photos from a recent research trip to Detroit and Flint (kindly supported by the Binder Travel Fellowship).

Soon to come: more photos of Philadelphia, especially now that the weather’s nice for bicycling and photographing; a better account of my trip to Michigan; and maybe some parting-shot thoughts on thesis-writing. Don’t touch that dial!
