Interesting conversations in Philadelphia

Image
Visiting Philadelphia principally for the artworks in the Philadelphia Museum I was fortunate enough to be invited to meet and discuss my research with interested academics as well as their work in oral folklore and monster bridegrooms in contemporary fairy tales. Such discussions can only add richness to my dissertation whether I consider a small directional change or I need to research an aspect further or just 'tweak' aspects of my work. I will consider attending the Fairytale and Folklore Conference in 2015. 
I loved the Uninpenn library. So amazing, fantastic chairs including rocking chairs with a view to a campus covered in snow ( would be a distraction to work) and what a view from the top floor. Also visited the Library of Congress in Washington DC.
