In the first week of June, she still had heard nothing and figured it meant bad news: rejections always come out later than acceptances.

Energized and Recharged

It’s great to be back at Queen’s after spending six months away. This was my first academic leave (sabbatical) in over thirty years of academic life.

There is a lot of information that I will be bringing back to Queen’s, and I also hope and believe that I have imparted some of my experience to the institutions that welcomed me as a visitor.
