Tomorrow I leave!
I'm excited to have the opportunity for field study; these positions are few and far between, and I'd like to thank my supervisor, Professor Grant Ramirez, for sponsoring my application.
I've set up this blog as a diary come research log. I hope to update it as often as possible. I've been assured that the station has internet access; given its location, the service is obviously intermittent.
I'll also use the blog to talk about all things mal*; I hope to bring together as many disparate strands of research as I can.
Mainstream discussion of The Sick Land is hard to come by. I hope that, as a researcher in this area, I can help disseminate information pertaining to this fascinating area and its history.
My next post will be sent from station Alpha!
* Mal - Of or pertaining to The Sick Land. I'll try to keep the academic jargon to a minimum. Nobody wants to read that.
