Might be an interesting and valuable opportunity for someone in IR. I get their newsletter and it is useful.

"We typically seek applications from students, early career academics, and those currently in a break from study. We do not limit ourselves to Politics/IR – if you come from a different academic area but have something to say about political issues, you are welcome!"

Ahh.... completed a paper draft. Nice to have it done. You can view and comment here (plenty of time to make changes yet).

Met a teacher from a university in Beijing at the conference dinner last night. (Which was really good btw) His uni said first two weeks of upcoming term will be taught all online. Which good considering at the rate things are going he's not sure he'll even be able to get home.

About to get on the plane to conference. Last time I went was probably 2006? Looking forward to this a lot.

Fully enjoying Sunn 0))) Life Metal as the accompaniment to syllabus input for next year.

Working on revising the conference slides. A full ten days before the conference!

Tenured position available in my faculty at Gakushuin ISS.

教授または准教授の公募(アジア経済論(「地域研究の手法」を含む))

Must be able to teach in Japanese and in English, but fully balanced bilingualism is not expected.

We have very good gender diversity compared to most faculties in Japan and I'd like to keep it that way. Would strongly suggest academics from other countries, especially in Asia, to apply

OK, smart people, especially linguists. Shorthand, gibberish, something else?

Request: can anyone make sense of these glyphs/symbols?

Acronym anxiety.

When you see NLP in somebody's bio and you wonder.... Is it the nightmare of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and you have to run away, or is it Natural Language Processing and you want to talk with them?

I just submitted to the 12th Linguistic Landscape Workshop
9-11 September 2020, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

After years of toiling away in ELT, extensive reading, and , I've found something different and much more satisfying to research. But scary to do something new. A bit of a stretch and I still don't feel as comfortable with the language in this area. I can write an ELT-related proposal in my sleep, but this is harder. Wish me luck!

My wife is running for local elective office (for library board). I accompanied her to a candidates forum at a downtown housing project. Candidates outnumbered residents, unfortunately, but cross discussions among folks running for school committee, City Council, library board, etc. on topics of homelessness, downtown vitality, urban planning, city resources and more was fascinating to listen in on, and provided a glimpse to the potential of local folks to change their community. #smallstories

New books arrived for next year's new course. These copies are for the adjuncts who will teach six of the ten sections.

Just got my submission to ThaiTESOL in under the wire. I haven't been to that conference in at least ten years. Hope I can get back!
