Good afternoon blog,
I’ve been dipping a toe into a few different projects lately.
OCILL is beginning to slow down as Dr. Okur has been busy preparing for the school year (and moving her daughter into her dorm for college hehe) so there aren’t really any updates there.
UTCF had another meeting last week, and I was tasked with imagery to use for ~Traveling Tex~. Traveling Tex will be visiting different French-speaking countries and cities all over the world, and we have a couple ideas for displaying his traveling. One of these is Tex holding a lil flag, another is Tex holding a food item from that place, and the third is Tex superimposed into that location. The third is tricky…right now I’m just finding images rather than videos and even that is very difficult with copyright laws. The French team is just going to have to send Valerie and I to France and Morocco and Belgium to do some fieldwork I think.
I’m organizing all of these images in this spreadsheet (I haven’t gotten to the food item section yet – lotta research shall go into that one)
Beyond this, I’ve been working on creating new post-interview activities, which I would LOVE to share but I don’t want an interviewee to see so just trust me they’re fun 🙂
