Friday Varia and Quick Hits

I’m pretty sure that today is Friday in North Dakotaland and while I wish I could say that the world was slowly returning to a kind of post-COVID normalcy, it, in fact, seems to imploding. The only thing we can hope is that some good comes from these dark days. 

It does seem kind of pointless to be posting on my blog or fussing around with my scholarship or doing much of anything these days. Writing or reading this blog seems like a low priority. 

But, if you’re here (and I do appreciate you as readers!), do check out the voices that Eric Burin brought together in his Protesting on Bended Knee: Race, Dissent and Patriotism in 21st Century America (2018) or check out Gayatri Devi’s short essay on this week’s NDQ blog on mainstreaming racial slurs.

Or check out this little gaggle of quick hits and varia:

    not at all pointless, and not a low priority. scholarly thinking does matter now, more than ever. I look forward to reading these blogs with my morning coffee — puts the day on the right track. thanks for doing them.
