Looking forward to the publication of an article in Canada this spring, and awaiting editorial decisions on two other texts, I’m facing the fact that this year, 2013, sits in my LinkedIn profile as the expected PhD completion date. I think it’s time to start pasting together all the pieces and shreds that have collected on my desktop over the past years, add up the word count, and see what tentative result emerges from this mosaic. I’m a bit nervous about that, but it’s got to be done sooner or later. And then, rearrange-add-edit-rearrange-add-edit…
They call the final year “the write-up year”, also known as the time when people temporarily vanish. Let’s see how that goes!
Once again, sending wishes of kindness to all who might come across these words. And of fulfillment, too. In all spheres of life.
In an effort to manage time, I’ve let too many thoughts slide past this blog in the recent months (thus the silence). Now it’s hard to summarize them all. Perhaps I’ll make up for it in the future. Meanwhile, here’s the forthcoming article:
Tanya Zaharchenko. ‘While the Ox is Still Alive: Memory and Emptiness in Serhiy Zhadan’s Voroshylovhrad’. Canadian Slavonic Papers / Revue Canadienne des Slavistes vol. 55 (March-June 2013).
Happy new year! С новым годом! З новим роком!
