I just learned that my friend David Wacks, a professor in Romance Languages, has a blog — http://davidwacks.uoregon.edu/ — on Medieval Iberian and Sephardic Culture. Who knew? Our conversations mostly involve graphic novels and keeping track of our kids on Saturday mornings at the public library, so we probably both are unaware of all sorts of other sides of each other’s lives. The blog seems fascinating — more erudite than mine is likely to be. Notably, David posts “middlebrow” versions of his research papers / works, which I think is a great idea.
