Here are some things to think about.
1. Mireille’s article on appropriations of Aimé Césaire. I read it and thought of Vallejo appropriations, and I did not yet know about Jonathan’s book on Lorca appropriations. Now I find Mireille’s prose irritatingly unclear but I want to bring the piece up again since it is about the nation and since this is an issue around Vallejo that does need further discussion.
2. Here I am saying it is time to stop thinking about nation and pueblo and remember there is a state which may not be the same entity as this (public face of the) nation. But the nation-state has been ending for some time now, and the Bewilderbeast says the state itself is ending.
It is ironic that I would have just discovered the state at this point.
