GeoCurrents’ Reduced Schedule for Winter and Spring

Submitted by on January 18, 2013 – 10:45 pm 6 Comments |  
Dear Readers,

As many of you have probably noticed, GeoCurrents posts have substantially decreased in frequency over the past month. Unfortunately, this reduction in posting will continue for at least the next several months. Asya and I have been convinced that our series on Indo-European linguistics deserves to be expanded and turned into a book, which will take much of our time through the first half of the year. In academia, moreover, books count whereas blog postings do not, and as a result we are under some pressure to publish in a more conventional manner. We are also teaching a new class together, which began just last night, on the history and geography of the world’s language families. Between the class and the book, we will have relatively little time for work on GeoCurrents.

We will continue, however, to put up occasional posts in both the main section of the blog and in the “GeoNotes” section. I plan, for example, to post tomorrow some of the language maps that we used in our introductory lecture. But the News Map section of the site, which is currently empty, will not be updated in the foreseeable future and will probably be removed from History and Geography of Language FamiliesGeoCurrents, at least temporarily.

It has been our great pleasure to work on GeoCurrents over the past several years, and especially to interact with our readers, and we have every intention to eventually return to an active blogging schedule. For the time being, however, we will have slow down and concentrate our efforts elsewhere.
