Michael Farris bringing all my threads together
Michael Farris was kind enough to comment on my "Things to remember" post from the end of the semester, and like him, I am behind on my blog reading. When I visited his site, I found this post about Jeremiah Wright that brings together many of my own current preoccupations: white privilege, rhetorical acts post 9-11, mourning, and memorializing. He references a Judith Butler work I am not familiar with--more reading for the class? I might be able to start my fall 2008 War and Peace in the Global Village class with Michael's post.
