update

19Apr08

So it’s been too long since I’ve updated but I do have good reason.  Despite all the chaos with bureaucratic matters in my department, I have actually left the United States to begin my dissertation research.  I’ve spent the past three weeks in what I’m calling Global South Country (the only thing I will say to narrow it down even further is that the country is in the western hemisphere).  It’s been good, bad, and disastrous. Good because I am getting some good research done, even though I always forget just how slowly archival work can go.  Bad because it’s quite lonely and because I don’t love where I’m staying, even if my apartment does serve its purpose. Disastrous because I had a major computer problem which has required that a relative send a part down here.  I’m here for another three weeks and already I’m planning my second trip down here for sometime probably early next year.
