Asymptote funding campaign

Good friends Asymptote, one of the finest journals specializing in works in translation, have just launched a funding campaign. From the description of their needs:

We are dreaming of some serious upgrades to the site, and raised funds will go towards the development of an interactive world map that will allow viewers to explore Asymptote’s contents based on region; holding a new translation contest (see below); establishing more journal partnerships around the world, and investing in farther-reaching publicity (so our authors reach even more readers).

Well worth supporting if you can.

New Article at International Journal of Heritage Studies

It’s an honor to say that the International Journal of Heritage Studies has just published an article which grew out of my master’s thesis some years ago, on the curious case of the disappearing town of Dunwich, England. The article is available on the IJIH website; more information about Dunwich for those without institutional access is available at various websites, including the Dunwich Museum, the Dunwich research consortium, and Atlas Obscura (itself a gem of a site).

If anyone out there does make it to Dunwich, please, for the love of God, have a meal of fish and chips at the Flora Tea Rooms. You’ll remember it for the rest of your life.
