In America’s heartland.

Sorry for not posting for two weeks – I am currently in the United States. The conference that I attended was very good, my presentation went fine, I think, and now I am sitting in Soma, a café in Bloomington, Indiana, trying to write an application to get funding that would allow me to participate in the Crossroads 2006 conference in Istanbul. My scholarship might end soon (just one more month to go, actually), but I do not intend to end my scholarly activities. To the contrary! We won’t let ourselves get grinded down in the academic wo do not have any jobs – either you get depressed, get a one Euro job, or work until you get sick machine. Loitering for the right to loiter!
