Dear Willard,

Thank you for having forwarded to the list my lost - and now found - email!

I am looking forward if some of us would like to discuss my point, and I
signal an interesting conference that happens in Paris next week at the
Ecole Normale Supérieure, notably with François Hartog about «Gobal
Humanities». With the presence of DH.


Kind greetings,
