Where Emily goes! Woohoo.
10 February 2013 - Marquesan Now!
Hey all, I recently arrived in French Polynesia to spend a year conducting doctoral fieldwork in anthropology. I would love to keep in touch, but will be posting to my other blog more regularly than this one. Please check out Marquesan Now for daily Marquesan words, photos and updates! Thanks…
14 September 2012 - My NEW BLOG!
I know, I know. I don’t keep up with this one…so why am I starting another one? But this new one is SPECIAL. Believe me. It’s associated with one of my greatest passions: THE MARQUESAS ISLANDS. Inspired by my book on the Marquesan language, it shares Marquesan news, photos, and words (it will parallel my […]
11 September 2012 - Marquesan Now
Hello hello! Long time no see, I know. Busy times (I went back to school!) and a bit of a fail in terms of my blog-maintenance tactics. In any case, I hope to do better in the future (working on it!). One thing I’m up to lately: I just started a new Facebook page called […]
10 May 2011 - Tracks through the back yard…
I recently took the train north from Massachusetts to Vermont, and once again found myself marveling at how much I love this mode of travel! The (usually) gentle click-click of the train wheels is calming and peaceful. The seats are large and comfortable compared to other forms of public transport. The seat next to you […]
16 March 2011 - Change
Wow. It’s been over a year since I last posted a regular blog post! That’s embarrassing. In a way it’s a good thing—just goes to show how much down time I’ve had, in front of the computer—but it still makes me feel guilty. Sigh. Anyhow, on to brighter things: there have been some BIG changes […]
29 January 2010 - Updated Emsite!
At the risk of shameless self-promotion, I recommend checking out my website if you haven’t in a while! I recently updated it to include some new features, including details on this summer’s archaeological field school in the Marquesas and an entirely new FRENCH section, which I had been intending to do since I originally started […]
20 August 2009 - Back from an August Jaunt
Wow, it’s been a while since I posted anything. Sorry about that. It’s been a busy month! Just returned from a very pleasant trip to New England; there’s nothing quite like Maine in August! Gorgeous dark night skies filled with stars, fewer mosquitos than June or July (though they were still pretty bad this year, thanks to […]
08 July 2009 - Back from a summer jaunt
Sorry it’s been so long! I know everyone (anyone out there?) has been waiting with baited breath for my next post. Err…or not. In any case, it’s been a wild and woolly last two weeks, much of it spent without computer access…which was actually quite nice! But now I’m back in business, comfortably installed once more on […]
13 June 2009 - Cold and Endearing
It’s so nice to come back to Boston for the weekend! Even if it’s cold and rainy here, it was hot and rainy in DC, and I was more than glad to escape. Yes, the city of beans and lobsters is cold and grey today, and I had to put on a sweater and grab […]
28 May 2009 - Good European Sense
I love the United States and regularly thank heaven I was born here–the ever-self-scrutinizing land of the free, home of the brave. But in some respects, I believe the Europeans may still have us beat. Vacation time, the seriousness with which they take their meals, their love and eternal use of bikes, and that good ol’ appreciation […]
