Homi, Foucault, Anderson, sexuality, race

This is interesting. The comments on Anderson are instructive, and the reminder about Foucault on sexuality and race is useful.

Yet more interesting is the book it is in, a large compendium on transformation, called both atlas and monument.

A starting point — or two, and a half

There are so many ways to start everything, so many points of entry, that I have become one of those who wants to write prefaces and prefaces to prefaces.

But I think the starting point to push on for this is that DFS’ book is one of those that attributes racism — at least, the colonial-based racism I am talking about — to modernity itself; in DFS’ case the culprit is the Cartesian subject. I will start pushing there.

On my other piece, I have these points:

  • “Adjunct” is not an ontological, but a political category
  • The real question, the real division among faculty, is whether or not one is for a critical university

And the Wonderland Avenue Public School is the school in Laurel Canyon I was interested in.
