My department wants me to maybe teach 3 classes again next semester. And I don’t really want to. But I also kinda need the money. And it is technically possible. It would just be very taxing.
I need to decide what to do and I just don’t know….
I’m only a chapter and a half through ‘Bodies and Pleasures’ but yeah it’s pretty powerful thus far. I didn’t realize it would mix academic reflection with personal meditations on the applicability of Foucault’s queer theory to her own life but hey I’m not complaining.
Yeah that also seems to go for the other book I posted (Saint Foucault: Towards a Gay Hatiography). The author (David Halperin) goes to great pains to show the connection between Foucault’s works and the social movements which aim towards the betterment of oppressed peoples. That is, as against his detractors (which half the book is devoted to responding to) who don’t see a way out of his theory of power.
Yeah, I haven’t read Saint Foucault (yet) but I’m planning on doing it at some point when I have time (HA!) But that is another common criticism I’ve seen leveled towards him, mostly by people who I think misunderstand or have a very circumscribed vision of what he is saying. McWhorter takes a full chapter in her book to ‘debunk’ the whole Foucault-traps-us-in-power argument too.

Seriously though writers if you use this Cas x Hannah just to kill her off and use it for Cas’ man pain I’ll kick your ass
CASTIEL DOES NOT NEED MANPAIN
HE’S ONE OF THE MOST ABUSED CHARACTERS
HE’S DYING OF SOMETHING COMPARABLE TO HUMAN CANCER
HE’S NOT TAKING CARE OF HIMSELF AND HIS “DISEASE” AND INSTEAD WORRYING ABOUT OTHERS
THIS IS ENOUGH PAIN FOR ONE CHARACTER DAMMIT
DON’T YOU DARE, WRITERS, DON’T YOU DARE
