2017-18 leave on an ACLS postdoc fellowship

A recent Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies will allow me to be on leave during the 2017-18 academic year. I will be based in Nashville to complete my first book on costuming and personhood in the unstageable world that is the early Qing China.

Me: I’m going to be on leave next year and will not offer courses.
My students: Are you going to be on vacation?!
