A photo of me with two lovely human beings - Charlie and Victoria Harris - at the David Foster Wallace conference this past weekend. Victoria and Charlie were both in the English department at Illinois State University during Wallace's time there. Both were close friends, and Charlie was the person responsible for hiring Wallace to the faculty. I made two new friends, one of whom - Victoria - is a fellow Derrida enthusiast! Just two of the many terrific people I met this weekend!

I recently had the privilege of reading and commenting on this important new work by Thomas Nail. My friend, Mark Westmoreland at Villanova, organized the following roundtable book event at the humanities blog, An und für sich.
