The Talk

My talk went great. This is an interdisciplinary conference but the constitutional scholar, the historian, the political scientist, and even the High Commissioner for the Spanish government on the issues of poverty and social inclusion (that’s his official title) understood what I was talking about and made great comments about it.

The government guy was actually a college professor until the new government was formed five minutes ago and he got appointed. It’s really great that the new government is appointing intellectuals to these jobs.

This is a great conference, and I am learning a lot from every talk I hear. If only there were more breaks, everything would be perfect.

    This must be a German cultural quirk. The conferences I have been to in Europe (Warszawa and Praha) had two and a half hour lunch breaks and only six to eight hours a day of talks.

    1. It’s 10 pm, and only now I’m free. We started at 9 am. And I still have to pack. This was very intense. I almost made a nasty joke about knowing what Ukrainians felt when Germans took them to Germany for forced labor during WWII.
