Reflecting from Johannesburg

Jet lag has the pleasant benefit of getting one up before the bustle of city life kicks in for the day. Flocks of hadedas heralded the coming sun–hardly the light birdsong of dawn, but a clear reminder I am actually in South Africa, again.

I am grateful for the opportunity to reflect on the work of this past quarter, to look for new teaching and research materials, and to plan for a new course on the anti-apartheid struggle in the coming fall quarter.
