A kid in a candy store...
Not a long post today, as too much to do in a short amount of time, but I just had to share--I'm at the Harvard-Yenching Library, and I feel like a kid in a candy store!!! So much to read and copy and scan and absorb in the next 2+ days. No way I'll get eve...

Andy, thanks for the kind words. I don't know any English-speaking university professors in Tokyo that I could introduce you to, I'm sorry. But if you're looking for history-related things "to do" in Tokyo, there are plenty. Feel free to ask, or post on the Samurai Archives site asking for recommendations.

Moving in a positive direction
Last post was clearly tinged with a bit of disappointment over not getting our panel picked up at AAS. And honestly, much of the disappointment was because I was looking forward to not only presenting, but being at AAS and getting to meet so many people who...

Thanks Husain! Appreciate the feedback! Not sure I'd be able to do this had I tried straight out of undergrad, but I've had time to let that passion percolate. Also, thanks for the comment on the podcast! We have fun with it.

Remind me never to make promises...
So...yeah. About that last post, and how I said I'd be posting more frequently... Just after that, I got word that I was moving. Oh, and I had to take a work trip to Alaska (shame how it coincided with the salmon run...). And my HS reunion. And...well, you ...

Methodology Video Series & Conference Update
Well, I finally have an update on the Palo Alto conference: it will not happen as originally conceived. No trip to Brownsville, TX for me. However, it will take place in a modified form. The organizers were able to coordinate with another conference taking ...

AAS-SEC and New Project
(Note: I STARTED writing this post in January, right after the AAS-SEC Conference. I then left for a month in Japan and...well, got busy. So if some of the text sounds like I'm writing about things in January as if they were last week, that's why. I'll try ...

the 16th century, and what inputs/philosophies shaped those decisions.

Book reviews and conference papers
Sorry for the recent rash of navel-gazing the last few posts. There's certainly some anxiety present as I come to the last year of my time in the Army, and look to lay the groundwork for what comes next. For all of the stress a military career puts on you, ...

Temporary setbacks
Last post I hinted at some news coming in the next week.
Well, it came, but it wasn’t what I was hoping for, exactly. Over the summer I organized a panel proposal for the
Association for Asian Studies conference next March in Chicago. Unfortunately,

And thus (hopefully) ends a really busy 5 months
Yeah, I've been pretty bad about updating. And as usual, I'll apologize and promise to write more. No really, this time I mean it! Since December has been non-stop, between work travel and conferences. Things are slowing down a bit, so I will catch you all ...

I've really enjoyed working for Varsity Tutors. The system is really easy to navigate, and my AP European History and AP World History students have greatly benefited from the databanks of test questions I can use to test them. I've just begun teaching a student in Japanese as well, and the drawboard feature is dynamite to use for drawing characters. The staff has always been very responsive to any issues I may have, technical or otherwise, and regularly checks in to see how things are going for me. That makes me feel like a valued asset. Overall my experience so far has been stellar!
