Hot Off the Press


In my latest for the Ploughshares blog, and in honor of May Day, I interviewed translators Dr. Mutlu Konuk Blasing and Randy Blasing, who have brought Nazım Hikmet’s many works to the English-speaking world.


I’m currently the featured member on the Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (YPFP) New York blog. Read the interview here. Many thanks to Samantha Flick for talking to me.
