I'm went to Oaxaca in July 2011 courtesy of the NEH to study the arrival of the Spanish from the indigenous point-of-view. I'm now plotting to return and continue researching GM corn and colonial architecture in 2013.

I was planning to spend the month of July in Oaxaca taking Spanish classes and learning how to dance salsa. But I heard today that I was accepted for the NEH institute, so I'll be working with other teachers and scholars to write new curriculum. This is a good thing because I tend to be more productive in a structured environment than I do when I'm footloose and fancy-free. So I'm totally excited!
