Delirium's Library Ever wondered what happens to all those books sold in second-hand stores and yard sales, left on buses, or given away free? Sandman readers will know Dream's Library, which is full of all the books never quite published, but Delirium, Dream's younger, kookier sister, also has quite the collection of bizarre and brilliant works.
Looking Behind the Mirror.
Surprisingly enough, not everyone is going to give you a simple answer. Yes, as students Julia Knope and Trevor Hewitt were chastised for somehow not being a racial identity that was discriminated against, the pair were reduced to their white identity and told to leave the space of the oh-so-important intersectional folks.
Whiteness is a constantly shifting boundary separating those who are entitled to have certain privileges from those whose exploitation and vulnerability to violence is justified by their not being white.
It examines the systems of normalcy related to these privileges and advantages. So there are privileges and advantages to being white in this society. So this is a term, and this is the term that we use to investigate white power privilege here at PCC this month.
Yale University is hardly the first institution to use funds for an activist course racializing white people though. The idea of talking about the problem of whiteness is to turn the question back to where it belongs. The problem of racism is the problem of whites being racist towards blacks.
The course is a challenge and response to racism of all kinds. How very progressive that dichotomy is. Speaking to The College Fixformer professor Michael Zimmerman summed up the state of racial tensions in American universities quite clearly: To pretend that students fleeing Evergreen is simply a function of the economy or because of bad press generated by the far right is both misleading and counter-productive.
We need to focus on the mission of the college, serving the students we have now, and fixing up the curriculum to serve the needs of the students who are coming at us.Osman, Jena, Juliana Spahr, and Janet Zweig, eds. Chain 4 (fall ): procedures.

poet whose art and teaching demonstrate great imagination and daring. By creating a forum for genuine criticism and analysis of contemporary literature, specifically contemporary poetry and the contemporary novel.
There are too few outlets that take the time to scrutinize literature, to explain how and why we value poetry and novels the way we do. Spahr et al. also point to sociology as a field that uses computational methods to address critical, cultural questions.
But again, addressing critical or cultural questions with computational methods is not at all the same thing as being critical, culturally progressive, or activist. Ever wondered what happens to all those books sold in second-hand stores and yard sales, left on buses, or given away free?
