Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

News and Things  §

The semester is nearly over, thankfully. Time for summer and for some hard work on my own research.

During late summer I'll be teaching sociology at Baruch, then during 2010-2011 I'll be a teaching fellow at the New School working both at Eugene Lang College the New School for Liberal Arts and in the Media Studies department, and I'll split my time by additionally handling another group of media courses at NYU. I've also recently become co-managing editor at the International Journal of Politics, Culture, and Society, and will at the same time be assisting Professors Virag Molnar and Jeff Goldfarb in their respective programs of research.

In short, the period from July 2010 through May 2011 is likely to be ridiculous busy and the thought of it makes me need, for the moment at least, a nap.

Finally, for everyone that heard one bit of news but not the other, or vice-versa, yes, I did recently recieve a nice and somewhat lucrative (by my standards, at least) job offer from the United Nations, but after careful consideration, turned it down. It's nice, however, to be wanted.

With this particular update over (and the only blog post in some time written), I am now going to take this weekend to get some much needed rest and to shoot a lot of photos and work on resuscitating what has lately become a somewhat stagnant stock photography sideline.
