summer fun

What follows is my current summer reading schedule.  For those readers with whom I’ve bandied about the idea for an informal summer reading seminar, this offers some idea of the things I’m working with this summer.  Maybe you’re into them too, and we can just pick books off each other’s personal lists to share during the summer; or, alternately, we can choose books that aren’t on anyone’s lists at present.

If you know what I’m talking about, you’ve been tagged–post your summer reading lists too!

  • 28 April: Uptaught, Ken MacRorie Done!
  • 5 May: The Methodical Memory, Sharon Crowley (half done)
  • 12 May: Yearning: Race, Gender, & Cultural Politics & Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black, bell hooks
  • 19 May: Empire, Michael Hardt & Anthony Negri (first half)
  • 26 May: Empire, Michael Hardt & Anthony Negri (through end)
