Welcome to Texas State Web Pages. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
Hi all – Dr. Canfield has provided us with an updated hourly schedule:
We already know that several of you have departing plans for the Sunday night or Monday morning, which might interfere with attending presentations late Sunday evening or Monday morning. This is ok, especially if you are missing Monday. The activities for Monday morning are largely administrative. If you are leaving Sunday evening and you are enrolled in the course, please let Dr. B know if you haven’t done so.
See you soon!
New to this year’s Institute will be a visit to Oxford. We will also hold presentations at the Ashmolean Museum. We’re all very excited about this new addition – and we can all say, “I presented at Oxford” ahem ahem.
Wondering what you need to power your electrical devices in the UK? Here’s a good article that describes what the differences are between and adapter, converter, and transformer. You may find all you need is an adapter depending on what you are bringing with you.

Hey, if anyone is going to be in London early, the Northampton Saints are going to be in the Aviva Premiere Finals on May 25. Match will be at Twickenham Stadium in London.
Hi all – we’ve come across another site with some useful information about the different forms of travel cards available in London. We were trying to figure out which might be the better economical option for public transportation – Travelcards or Oyster Cards. This website tries to give a breakdown of which card becomes the cheaper option under which circumstances: London Toolkit Hope this helps!
Yeah, I know, the Whovians are a force to be reckoned with on this trip 😀 Dr. Beckenbach and myself have used an app called CityWalk – London to create our own walking tour of Doctor Who related sites. It’s roughly a two-hour walk, and includes a stop by the British Film Museum which houses a Doctor Who exhibit (plus a huge Star Wars exhibit, for those who seriously want to get their geek on). For all interested, we’ll try to figure out a good day (possibly Saturday) to take this walk.
Also remember – if you want to post on this site, go to http://wp.txstate.edu and hit the “login” link at the top of the page. Enter in your Texas State user ID and password (the ones you use to access email) and that’s it. Send myself or Dr. B an email to let us know you signed up, and we’ll set you as a “user” on the site. This will let you make comments on the different pages of this site. You do NOT need to make your own website for this to work.
Hi all! We’ve tried to compile lots of information to help you in your travel planning. Browse the site as much as you’d like; feel free to comment on different pages and add information that you find. Keep in mind this is a public site, so don’t post personal info like phone numbers and such.
WordPress sites (like this one) are viewable on mobile devices, either through a web browser or an App. <— By the way, when you see words highlighted in blue, that means you can click on it and it will take you directly to the page related to that information 🙂
This way you can take the webpage with you in England!
