It was such a nice Friday, hosting geographers for a writing retreat. Proposal writing, abstract writing, preparing papers for the AAG and more - a lot got done practicing the method of silent “90-minute sessions” developed by Prof. Rowena Murray.
And just a quick update: Tom Becker and I (Carr) are planning 1-day on campus retreats for the University of Luxembourg staff and students (posters coming soon).
If you or someone you know would like to join, just send me an email.
