[A service announcement...]
Posting has been a little sporadic here of late. And it is likely to be even more so over the next month, as I am away for most of June.
Thanks to an invitation from Craig, I'll be presenting on (yes) "Pirate Studies" at the so-called "Learneds" in Toronto next week.
Then almost immediately I'll be off to Buenos Aires and Asunción.
And though I hope to write something about Schmitt in that time, and perhaps some reports on the state of things in Argentina and Paraguay, these bulletins may well be brief at best.
Normal service will be resumed around the end of the month.
