First semester as ABD (All But Dissertation) comes with some jet-setting! Hope to catch some friends and colleagues at any of these events. This Fall, I will be based out of the Department of American Studies at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa as a Fulbright Scholar, and the East-West Center in Honolulu as an Affiliate Scholar.
