We've begun another academic year here at the ITI. My class load is quite light this time around compared with previous editions. The only regular class that I am taking is on the Song of Songs. In addition to that I am assistant-teaching a class on biblical interpretation (which Katie is taking) and an Intro to Scripture class on the Old Testament. So far that's all going pretty smoothly. The rest of the time I spend researching and writing my thesis and studying Italian.
