Kriti / SAJA Webcast (Or, In Other Words, Miscellaneous Updates)

Blogged about Kriti for Sepia Mutiny. Read here.

Interviewed a member of University Teachers for Human Rights (Jaffna) about their new report, which focuses on the final two months of the war in Sri Lanka, and in particular, its ramifications for civilians. Listen to SAJA webcast here (follow links). Apologies for technological difficulties… unexpectedly ran tech for the show, which I had never done before.

Reading and on a panel myself, shortly… so off I go.

Updates!

New stuff on the Articles page (Sepia posts), as well as on the Reviews page (an article by Smriti Daniel, whom I spoke to when I was in Sri Lanka for the Galle Literary Festival).

Also: a discussion I moderated at the Asia Society, in New York. Full video is online… see here for Sri Lanka at a Crossroads: Humanitarian Crisis Looms as Government Forces Approach Victory.

In Iowa City

I am reading at one of my favorite bookstores in the world tomorrow: the estimable Prairie Lights, where I spent many hours as a graduate student. 7:30 p.m. Awesome! In fact, the state of Iowa is awesome. If you have any doubts about this, look at the photo above. That’s a rally in Iowa City, following the state Supreme Court’s decision that gay marriage will become legal here.

Thanks to my pal Laura for the photo.
