As you may be able to tell from the slight change in my “About” page, I’ll be moving to Singapore! I have agreed to be Assistant Professor of Sociology at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) starting July 2012. I’m really excited about the opportunity to teach at such a globally recognized institution with some amazing colleagues. When I visited in April, I knew rather quickly that I wanted to be there. Thanks to the continued efforts of many people there, it’s happening. So, while I’m really sad that I’m leaving my beloved New York and my not-so-beloved United States, I’m looking forward to the opportunity to begin my career as an academic in a familiarly global and cosmopolitan city. More news to come but that’s it for now.
