|The skyline to the left, |
This morning's session (again, too many to choose from) was looking at American politics in film and television, including an important take on the 'six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon' and the influence of Kevin Bacon on the American presidency since 1980 (Steven Dobransky, Kent State), a fun paper with serious intent. I'm finishing up a paper on the mix between fact and fiction in Australian novels and post 9/11 security issues. What do we learn about our politics from our popular culture? Great panel.
|Who is 'Adonna'?|
And clearly, my accent, when I ordered coffee, was a problem...>>
Conference over, my afternoon was spent in the Art Institute, a place I have spent time before, but always a joy to find myself in again. So much to see...fast forward to 'Day 131 and a half' to see some pics.
|The Masters, at 6.12pm|
Sunday evening, back in the room, a little tired but very satisfied. A quick look on twitter to see it was Monday morning in Australia and everyone was hanging out to see whether or not Adam Scott might win the Masters...what else was there but to watch it 'live' US time at 6.12pm (and I'm not a particularly huge fan of golf...).
