After being unveiled at the 2015 Arryman Symposium, this year’s fellows, Sindhunata Hargyono and Norman Joshua are on their way to Chicago. Both of them have departed for the Windy City on July 1st via South Korea. While there have been a number of difficulties in the US Embassy Consular on issuing visas to enter the States, the Arryman Fellows were few of the lucky ones and got their visa fast-tracked because they have to depart by the first of July. Hence, in 24 hours their visas were issued and go they went to Chicago.
Since I started describing myself as an “independent scholar and freelance writer” over 35 years ago, I’ve always had difficulty explaining to Indonesians what being a scholar means.
