I am starting to adjust to life here in Bishkek a little bit now. My chair approved the reading assignments for my syllabi. I am going to make a few clarifications regarding class requirements and alter the grade structure somewhat. But, I am not going to alter the actual content of the courses. I will post my syllabi for Democratization and Russian Politics later this week.
I also received my proofs for "A Caste of Helot Labourers" recently. It will be published by SOAS as part of the proceedings of the conference I attended in November 2005. It does not look like I have much to correct. Which is good since the corrections are due by 20 August 2007.
