Is it really the 20th of January already? In my world, that means 11 days until the new semester, when I will be teaching a brand new module for final-year undergraduates. A module that has existed in my mind since last spring, but which now has to become reality aka a syllabus, handouts, worksheets and a course website. Hence less time for reading and reviewing, although I did have time to try out this new look for the blog (what do you think?! *twirls*) and to sign up to Twitter (see right).
For today, though, I’m rereading Helen Forrester’s 1993 novel The Liverpool Basque, which is a set text for the ‘Basque Liverpool’ unit of the new course, and maybe even worth a sneaky review too – including, if you’re very lucky, one or two of the photos from my ‘Liverpool Basque’ fieldtrip, of which you can see a tiny taster on the right.
