Breaking Down the Sabbatical

It's hard to believe that it's already been 7 years since I started at Carleton University. I remember thinking about going on sabbatical - a major feature of becoming a University professor. Well, now the time has come, and along with the proposal , I've scheduled quite a bit of travel to visit with colleagues and to take some well deserved holiday time. So here's the tentative schedule
