Yesterday (March 7, 2017), I presented the Second Lecture in the 3rd Annual Joan Muysken Lecture at Maastricht University. Unfortunately, the recording from the First Lecture, which I delivered on Monday evening (March 6, 2017) was corrupted but I am told there was an alternative video recorded and I will make it available when I can. The first lecture was a public event and the presentation reflected that. The second lecture was delivered to academic staff and students and so the language was more pitched to an academic audience, although it should be generally accessible. There is a little noise interference at odd times, which I could not get rid of. The audio of the talk runs for 50 minutes and I have interleaved the slides from the lecture in with the sound.
Anyway, this is my blog for today. I am fairly tied up with commitments during this trip to Europe and also finishing some manuscripts (textbook and book with Thomas Fazi) that have to be sent to the publishers in the coming week or so.
Note: I edited the audio to get rid of noises (where I could) and pauses while people entered or left the room and other irrelevant aspects.
Running time: 50 minutes
Music Credits: Steel Pulse – Ku Klux Klan.
I am in Brussels today and then heading to Malta later today and will report from there on Monday. The Weekend Quiz will appear as usual on Friday.
That is enough for today!
