Shana Haba biYerushalayim
Today I learned I've been selected for this exchange program with Hebrew University in Jerusalem. My chances of accepting are at least 85%, so I'm basically planning to be in Israel next year, where I shall in dynamic fashion seduce their women and seize their treasures before fleeing the country with Mossad agents hot on my heels.
Either that or I'll mainly concentrate on finishing my dissertation while learning whatever I find to learn.
I am an Associate Professor in History at Shippensburg University, where I teach courses in Middle Eastern and world history. My two major research areas are the Middle East from the 7th through 10th centuries and the Persian Gulf from ancient times to the present. Nothing on this site represents an official position of Shippensburg University.
