Oh wow I’ve been so neglectful of this blog and of you, my faithful readers (Mom, I’m looking at you). There’ve been a number of responsibilities occupying my time recently and I feel I’ve been too busy doing to reflect and write about doing. But here are some links to things I’ve been working on lately:
I spent 3 weeks in Izmir from late January to early February working on a Ladino oral history project. I also ate enough food to keep all of Tekirdag going for a week. This review is the love child of that research and consumption.
I’ve been continuing to volunteer every two weeks at the Ottoman-Turkish Sephardic Cultural Research Center. My main responsibility has been to create and maintain this blog.
3) Teaching. Still 21 hours a week, though digging my job a whole lot more this semester–mostly.
4) Traveling. January Black Sea and Aegean, February Spain, March Ankara, Istanbul, Edirne, and Diyarbakir (inshallah).
Still love you, I promise.
