Well, I figure someone has to do it. So here are some various accomplishments or odds and ends that don't really fit in anywhere else.
(4 April, 2007) This section has been quiet for ages. I know at least one person who would probably attribute that too me being too modest rather than anything else. Been a bit busy, with all sorts of projects. But one item worth post here -- the Oral History of Mongolia project I've been piloting received a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council in the UK to enable us to run it full-time for five years. So I'll be moving to the UK this summer. I'm not technically the boss, but I'm in charge of the day-to-day running of the project, and wrote the vast majority (say 95%) of the actual grant... This does mean, however, that this site might get neglected even more, although I have tentative plans for more photos and a few more bichig scans. But no promises... sorry.
(2 February, 2006) Two of the images from here, one inside a ger and the other of the newspaper clipping on repression (links will open in new windows) will appear in a forthcoming cultural anthropology textbook, Culture and the real world: core concepts of cultural anthropology applied to contemporary world issues by Jack David Eller. Note, April 4, 2007 -- Still haven't seen the book, and it doesn't show up on the publisher's website anymore.
(10 November, 2005) I haven't seen it yet - my copy is still in the mail (no, really!) - but I'm quoted in US News' Untold tales of the great conquerors, in the section on Chinggis Khaan. (You can order the book here if you can't find it and are really that curious.)
(2 February, 2006) Update: Now I have a copy. Not sure where I put it, but it's around. I'm quoted a few times. Nothing major, but still, nice to actually see your name there.
Some of my photos are now on exhibition in Ulaanbaatar. They are appearing at the Open Society Forum, a non-government organization. Most of them are from the webpage, although to be honest, I can't remember if they all are. You can't really make out the individual photos, but still, kind of cool. (At least to me.) If I ever get the time and inclination, maybe I'll put up an image-map version of the picture, so you can click on the image on the wall, and see a version of it. (But don't hold your breath.)
And speaking of photos....
Other photos, from the Gobi photo section are going to be used in an exhibition on dinosaurs from the Gobi at the University Museum of Nature at the University of Bialystok in Poland. They'll be using some photos of the Flaming Cliffs (a famous dinosaur fossil site) and saxaul (a type of shrub). You can visit an English version of the museum's website, although it is a bit more basic than the Polish one.
