“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
As of today, I've started using this site as one repository for my scholarly writing. While a personal website isn't really the best place to store one's work online for the long haul, I'm also using this platform to publish a project that I have been working on for quite some time: a paper titled "Meta-Radicalism: The Alternative Press by and for Activist Librarians." The piece talks about two waves of alternative library publications that focus on collecting alternative publications in libraries.
This has been the first work of mine to undergo the formal/scholarly peer-review process, and it feels like a major accomplishment. I am very happy to share it here under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license. I am also proud to report that this piece will also become a chapter of a new book to be published by the University of Wisconsin Press by the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture, titled Libraries and the Reading Public.
I welcome thoughts and reactions to the piece. Please read, share, and report back!
