I am shocked and amazed to be in such incredible company and can’t thank whoever nominated me enough :).
I was also able to attend two fantastic conferences this month: Gothic: Culture, Subculture, Counterculture in London, UK and The International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts in Orlando, FL. Both were great and the paper I presented at both seemed to be very well received (which thrills me as it’s a part of my dissertation work!) ICFA has quickly become one of my favorite events of the year, it’s so amazing to get to hang out with so many of my inspirations, both scholarly and creative. The fairy tale people are especially awesome and I’m so happy to know them all!
This month has really been a whirlwind of great news and fun and I feel so lucky right now :).
