Current Reading Habits
Currently my reading is almost entirely orientated towards facilitating my teaching. First and foremost this means a lot of rereading of the material I have assigned my students to read. Next it means reading literature related to the classes I will be teaching next semester. I will be teaching Political History of the USSR, Comparative Politics, and Borders and Migration. I have a syllabus for the first of these classes already. The second one I am co-teaching with another faculty member and will be using a standard textbook. It is the third class which I have to put together. It is the first class they are allowing me to design from scratch.
