Recently, a senior emeritus professor called me out because he hadn’t seen me at a talk in a different department (let’s say it’s Astronomy). “I’ve never seen you at a single Astronomy talk,” he admonished. “You really need to go to those.” I patiently explained that I typically have a teaching conflict, which he brushed off, and repeated his imperative that I really needed “to go to those talks.” He was angry at my laziness in failing to attend these critical seminars in a tangentially related field, and didn’t respect my explanations that 1) I couldn’t, and 2) even if I could, I have to make hard choices and don’t always have the luxury of doing everything I’d like to.

I am back to doing research on the Cakewalk and found this website. I was looking for more details on the In Dahomey tour to the UK and stumbled onto this gem.

Saw this article on #phdchat. Think it might be useful down the road. 11 months to go!!

Below, enjoy some of the most memorable moments from their talk.
