First, my confession of a mortal sin of the blogosphere: I stopped posting. It’s the death knell of blogs, I know.
But I had good reason for the break. I took a year-long research leave to complete two big research projects. Many bloggers I know would pick up pace during a sabbatical. I felt that the prospects of finishing both projects would be slim without serious focus. And so, I disconnected.
I’m glad I did. I needed all the time I could get. With collaborators Bill Caraher, Scott Moore, and others, we are finishing edits of a volume detailing our archaeological survey of the site of Pyla-Koutsopetria in Cyprus. That was an enormous amount of work and is 99% done.
The other project, related to the theme of this site, was a diachronic history of the Isthmus of Corinth in the Roman period. That about killed me. I’m wrapping up the final two chapters on the late antique period this semester. My projected completion date is January. I’ll have more to say about this in the coming year.
All of this to note that after a long hiatus, Corinthian Matters resumes this week.
I’ll be reviving some of the regular features of the blog (news, conference coverage, Corinthian Scholarship Monthly, etc…), and also developing some of the stable content of the website, especially bibliographic libraries.
So, if you have news, stories, scholarship, please send them my way. Check back for new content and resources.
