I recently graduated from Swarthmore and I’m heading off to Benin to teach English as a Peace Corps Volunteer for the next two years. I’ve already slowed a bit on blogging in the last year, and it will likely be even less frequent the next two years. If you need to contact me, email me at thirschelburns@gmail.com.

On a related note, while I’ve been publishing less on this blog recently, here are some of the things I’ve published elsewhere:
