Current and Upcoming Events:
Galloping History Conference at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey, April 2014
I attended my first academic conference as a graduate student in Turkey! What a way to start! I presented my paper " Women Warriors: Preliminary Research on Moroccan Women in Equestrian Tradition." This paper covers most of my literary research and early interviews that I conducted in 2010 and 2012 in Morocco. It was a great experience to get feedback and good questions on my paper and network with other horse scholars and horse enthusiasts!
Comparative Celtic Lexicon Project in 2011
Through partnership with K. David Harrison and Swarthmore College in 2011, I was a research assistant and helped establish the first comparative cognate lexicon in six Celtic languages including, Irish and Scottish Gaelic, Manx, Cornish, Welsh, and Breton.
