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!


You can post anonymously if you really want to, but I would appreciate it if you could provide some means of identifying who you are, if only for the purpose of knowing who has written what.
