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

  • Started Maria Accardi's Feminist Pedagogy for Library Instructors this morning on the train and it is ah-mazing. I really admire the way that Accardi is able to meld scholarly and autobiographical writing, and how she talks about her decisions as she does so: "I have felt extremely insecure over my writing style in this chapter, which is a definite departure from the more scholarly tone I adopt in later chapters. But I persist in writing this way nonetheless, because my instincts, my gut, my intuition tells me that what I have to say--and the way I'm saying it--has value" (16).
    This is a book I'm really excited to keep reading--as a model for my own writing projects and as a tool for instruction.
