I think and write in two languages, English and Turkish, and I dwell in multiple writing mediums : professional journals, edited books, semi-academic magazines, blogs, and letters to friends with whom I share my intellectual journey.  I like to experiment with ideas in as many different forms as possible.  An idea in a blog could be sketchy, giddy, fragmentary.  In a professional journal, it reads as highly structured, serious, and sometimes pedantic.  (Believe it or not, I do love to see an idea’s less imaginative form as much as its most feisty and exuberant existence.)  As a book chapter it merges itself in a conversation, and in a letter it becomes part of an ongoing dialogue.
