- The Fifteenth Century is the Most Interesting Century - in which I claim that the fifteenth century is the most interesting period to research historically (this article inexplicably has thousands upon thousands of views and reads - not sure at all how that happened)
- Pop History is Ethnocentric - in which I argue that pop history is inherently ethnocentric and untrustworthy
- Indonesian Population Density c.1500 - in which I discuss some fundamental features of medieval Indonesian demography
- Medieval New Guinea - a discussion of the island of New Guinea as it appears in medieval Indonesian texts
- The Ancient Languages of Indonesia - an overview of the literary languages of Indonesia that are useful for historical study
There's more! Follow me on twitter or Medium for updates. I'm also tweeting Old Javanese and Old Sundanese vocabulary on a daily basis, so if that sounds good then give me a follow. (On the other hand, I occasionally use twitter to rant about fascism, but, well, it's 2017. Everybody's doing it.)
Incidentally, I did pretty well in my Leiden MA - my thesis on Bujangga Manik (a fifteenth-century Old Sundanese text) got 9.3 out of 10 - a very high mark at Leiden, so they say. The readers even called it 'ground-breaking', which is nice. If you email me nicely then I can send you a copy. I'm hoping to continue working on Bujangga Manik in future for a PhD, but let's see how the funding search goes. Regardless, I'm working as an English teacher in The Hague to make some money on the side.
This blog isn't entirely defunct - I'll keep everything up and will check on it occasionally. But for all intents and purposes my online presence is now over on Medium. Hope to see you over there!
