The Duck Quacks at Twilight

Heading back east

August 11, 2006

The movers are here. My internet connection is scheduled to cut out any time now.

I’ve had a great time at OSU. The Mershon Center is a wonderful institution, with terrific academics and staff. They’ve built an exciting intellectual climate. Thanks to everyone for having me out and for making my stay so interesting and productive.

If you are looking for post-doctoral fellowships in international studies, then you should definitely apply to Mershon.

The bad news is that my book manuscript isn’t quite done. I’ve still got some line-edit style revisions to complete. But that’s also the good news: the book manuscript is very close to submission to publishers.

Other than that, I can say that I’m heading back to Georgetown with a few more publications and forthcoming publications under my belt–something I’ll have more to say about when I get around to some shameless self-promotion.

Despite all the great things about the Mershon Center, I’m definitely looking forward to getting back home and teaching again at Georgetown.

Consider all of this an explanation for why you may not be seeing much in the way of posting from me over the next few days.

PS: if you’re ever in Columbus you should try a hole-in-the-wall restaurant called “Indochine.” It’s on Hamilton between Broad and Main. The owners are welcoming and the food is spectacular.
