Digital Digs: integration and dissolution in general education - http://alex-reid.net/2014...

Object-Oriented Philosophy: my favorite piece of advice in the Johnston interview - http://doctorzamalek2.wordpress.com/2014...
He mentions something for young scholars that I don’t think I’ve thought of before, but which seems true. Namely, one way to increase your written productivity is to make sure that your authorial voice is as close as possible to your spoken voice. After all, we rarely run out of things to say in conversation, […]

Originally posted on Installing (Social) Order: A chapter of Michel Foucault’s famous 1977 Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison (1975, Surveiller et Punir: Naissance de la Prison) is titled “The Carceral.” In a few brief notes, I reconsider the chapter in light of contemporary discussions and literature.

Ecology without Nature: Afrika! L'Afrique, C'est Chic - http://ecologywithoutnature.blogspot.com/2014...
Tell me it isn't just me who hears that. Afrocentric disco--what a brilliant idea. I was talking about this kind of thing in my “Earworms” talk in Brussels. Forcing white people to hear that in their heads for years, whether they consciously want to or not.

Digital Digs: digital impacts, scholarship, and general education - http://alex-reid.net/2014...
I’m bringing together a couple conversations I’ve been following online and that also have become juxtaposed at least on my campus: general education, with its attendant adjunct concerns, and impact metrics for research as they intertwine with digital activity. So…

But was in fact written by Sloterdijk in a book I'm using for my lectures (he gave them last year in any case):  “the vengeful joy of the melancholic who compiles an archive of evidence to show that the world has gone wrong.”
