Now Posting on Medium (Medieval Indonesia)

It's been a while since I've updated this blog, but I wanted to let any readers/subscribers know that I'm now writing on Medium under the name Medieval Indonesia (twitter account: @siwaratrikalpa). I'm re-posting some articles from this blog over there, giving them an update in the process, and I've added some new content as well. The new pieces include:

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!
