Friday Varia and Quick Hits

It is supposed to hit 80 degrees here in Grand Forks this weekend and will be only a few degrees cooler than Larnaka, Cyprus. I can’t explain how amazing these early summer days are here in the Northern Plains. Clear skies, low humidity, and pleasant breezes after the cold winter.

As I wrap up my semester, I want to remind folks to check out the little book that my graduate students prepared in the aftermath to cuts in our graduate program, Defending History: The Graduates’ Manifesto, and while you’re at it, please do check out the expanded content added to the Haunted by Waters: The Future of Memory and the Red River Flood of 1997 page at The Digital Press.

It might also be fun if you checked out these various quick hits and varia:

  1. I’ve enjoyed the music of Mohamed Abokezry of late–he’s a supremely talented oud player who studied under Naseer Shamma.
