I’m delighted to have won a Cliopatria Award (2009) in the category of ‘Best Post’, for my article on the Belitung Wreck (Curating the Oceans: The Future of Singapore’s Past, 14 July 2009). Many thanks for the votes — I had a lot of fun writing it. (Pirates! scandal! intrigue on the high seas!) And thanks of course to the folks over at the ISEAS Nalanda-Sriwijaya Center who arranged the visit to the wreck. (Those guys are doing fascinating intra-Asian work in general, by the way — if you work in this area, keep your eye on their CFPs).
