Today I had the pleasure of presenting my research at a “seminar” (we’d call it a roundtable or workshop) at one of the oldest universities in Europe. Uppsala Universitet was founded in 1477. I presented in the original and ornate law faculty room complete with chandeliers, 500 year old paintings, and amazing marble. I presented my comparative work on eco-labeling regimes for food, and, in addition to the Uppsala Faculty of Law, many private organic certifiers were in attendance. It was a great event followed by tea and pastries. I have never had so much tea and coffee with colleagues ever as I have had this week–time for us to put in a free expresso machine in the hallway at Vermont Law School.
And below is a photo of the church that I view out of my office window (my office is in the white building in the lower left hand corner).
