Mid-Week Field Notes | July 7, 2021

Some quick things:

  1. I am updating my Holocaustkidlit database. Good news: It should be done by the end of the week. Bad news: The version on holocaustkidlit.com refused to download. I had a lot of re-work to do. Next steps: Statistical analysis (through a statistical software package) and qualitative analysis (through NVivo).
  2. My first #52snapshot, “Black Taffeta,” will be published by The Kelsey Review, the literary magazine of Mercer County Community College, in the fall. So far, I’ve been successful in landing a piece in this journal every year since I began teaching at the college in 2016. This essay is about my father’s paternal grandmother and my namesake, Bryna Dvorkin Krasner.
  3. My talk on Monday at the Memory Studies Association went very well. I met some wonderful emerging scholars, including one from the Czech Republic who has an interest in the same Polish towns along the 1939 borders of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied zones.
