Recently got approved to give my first class next year...
I'm going to give a set of conferences on American Conservatism at the UPA of the Sherbrooke University.

Dear god I'm getting old...

If they can abolish fanaticism, let us pray for the advent of the sceptics.

Congratulations! That is so exciting! I haven't checked but I bet your the first person in the thread to be talking about a class your teaching! :D

Thank you!

To be honest, I'm both happy and terrified...

Pfft youngling, the last time I taught a university course was 10 years ago.

Good luck though. I loved teaching at the university level and miss it a lot. Do you get to develop the course from scratch? How big is the class?
