I've been on a post-tenure leave this semester & finishing manuscript revisions. As I prepare to re-enter the classroom I'm wondering what classes & materials other people are teaching & what classes people are taking. What books, theorists, concerns are at the center of your classes? Your own work? What are you reading & thinking about?

hey hysterical---i've been reading andrea smith's "conquest"--its a great book--Nadine Naber, Ella Shohat, Rabab Abdulhadi, and laura wexler have all been people I have read recently--I am grappling with the concept of nationhood and what it means for women of color and how a radical woman of color perspective can challenge and redefine "nation." I am not satisfied with chicana feminist's analysis of aztlan, so i have been examining how other radical women of color who are dealing with "nation" on a more physical reality are addressing it...

Hey HB!

I'm gearing up to teach my race, gender, and science fiction class. trying to bring together issues like forced sterilization in puerto rico and octavia butler's xenogenesis series. Reading theory in the bathroom means Loss (Eng et al), and awaiting me at my office is Hurricane Katrina: Reponse and Responsibility (Brownschild et al). My partner L* is intensely focused on re-reading Laura Hyun Yi Kang's Compositional Subjects
