As you might have noticed from this blog, I’m a bit of a fan of the written word. That’s why I’ve taken on the topic of writing, and publishing, for my second podcast. I look at how writing fits into my life and my job, how I feel about turning my PhD into a book (I haven’t done so), and what some of the highs and lows of the publishing process can be.
WordPress (annoyingly) no longer allows me to embed the actual PodCast player into my blogs, but luckily you can find the podcast on my Anchor site, or also on Spotify, GooglePodcasts, and also PocketCasts.
If you’re interested in seeing some of the work that I’ve written in an academic context (outside of this blog, obvs), check out my ResearchGate profile or my ORCID. The upcoming chapters that I reference in the podcast are in The Collector and the Collected: Decolonizing Area Studies Librarianship and A Handbook and Reader of Ottoman Arabic. You can also read the short story I had published in Prismatica, “Find Yourself a Good Jewish Boy.”
The paper that I reference in my book/paper chat section is:
Zakharova, T. V. (2014) ‘Из истории якутского алфавита’. Северо-Восточный Гуманитарный Вестник, 1 (8), pp. 5-11. Accessed from: http://igi.ysn.ru/publicasii/vestnik/vestnik_2014_1(8).pdf.
Dr. (?) Tamara Viktorovna Zakharova is aspecialist in the cultural history of Yakutia and works at the Institute of Research on the Humanities and the Problems of the Smaller Peoples of the North (Институт гуманитарных исследований и проблем малочисленных народов Севера). Although no English-language page on her work is available, a brief biography does exist on Sakha Wikipedia.
And, last but not least, enjoy the show!
