I'm back in Birmingham after a jam-packed week in Leuven. My excuse for going was this colloquium on Architecture, Gender and Domesticity. The presentations were, for the most part, quite good - and held to a topic which interests me a great deal. I wish it were possible for me to have contributed more, but I was quite outgunned by the other participants. I did have a chance to throw in my two franks on Saturday morning at the workshop - but I'm afraid I may not have been in peak form after staying up all night dancing at a Club Charlatan in Ghent. Anyway, we'll see how much of me they edit out of the transcript before it's published next year.
