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

  • First day of "Save the World on Your Own Time: The Rhetorics of Advocacy." We read through a few definitions of rhetoric, and a few examples of advocacy (from 8.5x15 photocopy mash-ups), and then I read "The Cooling Out Function in Higher Education" by Burton R. Clark on the way home--because Ira Shor prints out the readings for us each week.

    I think that was the fastest ever homework turnover time, and it felt intensely productive to get started, and during a commute. I'm also really pleased since we'll be reading Pedagogy of the Oppressed!
