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

  • "The Information: How the Internet Gets Inside Us" by Adam Gopnik, from the New Yorker, for class
  • A few other articles for class: "The Perils of Literary Profiling," and "Why Innovation Doffs an Old Hat," both from the New York Times
  • I've also been looking through Denys Wortman's New York. It's a bit of a skewed vision of the city (through the eyes of white folks), but the drawings are amazing!
  • The rest of "Class Mimicry in Stephen Crane's City" by Andrew Lawson
  • excerpt from "The Poor of New York" by Dion Boucicalt
  • "The Wyos and Their Times" chapter from Herbert Asbury's The Gangs of New York: An Informal History of the Underworld
  • "Maggie and the Sociological Paradigm" by Howard Horwitz
  • Most of the above is homework reading. I'm also catching up by watching King Kong, the 1933 version.
  • Foucault, "What is an Author?"
