“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • Yesterday morning, started Lauren Berlant's article, "'68 or Something," (Critical Inquiry, Vol. 21, No. 1 (Autumn, 1994), pp. 124-155) because it had been cited by Cvetkovich in her footnotes, and really enjoyed the very first part. Still working on it.
  • Yesterday afternoon, serendipity reminded me to how little I know about Ralph Bunche, so started Ralph Bunche: Model Negro or American Other? by Charles Henry. There a quick way to explain who Bunche was--the first African American to win the Nobel prize--but he was so much more, and yet is still a relatively overlooked historical figure.
