My presentation at the university went well, despite my prof finding lots of errors in the handout ( and me finding even more after the course…).
So now on to write the article. I am at 6 pages, 10 to go. There is still quite some time but yeah these months will continue being busy
New books for university arrived, the Tezkires of Ahdi, Beyani and Kınalızade. I wonder what I will do with these books after this course :).
Plans for the upcoming week include reducing my books and computer stuff to prepare for an eventually upcoming move.
In other news, last week I spent a few days in Mondsee with my daughter on a farm. Unfortunately I was a bit ill, so I went to bet at the same time she went, no studying in the evening. But we had good weather and relaxing days.
New books read:
- Kato Lomb: Polyglot, How I Learn Languages
Very inspirational and I like the idea of reading books early in the process. Just don’t know how it will work for me in practice, but I am thinking about dusting of my French.
New books bought:
- Rıdvan Canım: Tezkiretü’ş-Şu’ara ve Tabrisatü’n-Nuzema (İnceleme-Metin)
Just read parts of the Introduction and of course the article I need for my university work.
More books for university arriving the next days.
My course presentation is due on Tuesday, so much of my free time will go into preparing it.
My course this term is about ottoman poets. So I will have to study the tezikires. I already got a copy of the Meridith Owens edition of Aşik Çelebi. But others are either difficult to find or expensive. So more visits to the library necessary.
