Post-conference thanks and thoughts…

Dear friends, old and new,

What an exhilarating, eye-opening couple of days! I am grateful to everyone for the education and inspiration, as well as for the laughs and hugs. I have been working in the area of Environmental Humanities for a while now, and have found it challenging to engage the interest of colleagues in the sciences. What we all accomplished on Saturday offers an example of true, meaningful interdisciplinary work. We will build on the creative, intellectual energy that crackled through O’Rahilly 2.55 that day. Ben and I are already compiling a list of speakers and performers to add to the roster for the next event. Thank you for making Trans-disciplinary Conversations on Peatlands a success, and for tolerating instant coffee and forlorn sandwiches. I assume you have all begun to drop your adopted Irish word into casual conversation.

Looking forward to working with you all again.

Yours,

Maureen
