Updating Reading List

Hello All,

I’m going through our reading list, taking into account the suggestions some of you made in your homework assignment.  I suspect this may be an ongoing process, but for now I’m officially adding the following (they also appear with associated MLA citation on our Readings Page):

When I say I am “officially adding” something to the reading list, that means that I may ask you to write about it for homework/in-class work/a full essay.  You are also encouraged to consider discussing it in your final research paper (final paper directions TBA).

We have read the first two and not the latter two.  I have re-ordered the Readings Page  a little to put readings in chronological order (based on when they were written/published) and given each a number in the reading list so I can tell you both the title and number of what to read.

Remember that for our next class on WEDNESDAY 2/14, I asked you to read:

For the week after that, before we move on to Oscar Wilde, I’d like you to read:

I can’t WAIT to talk about Alice Moore Dunbar-Nelson; I’d never heard of her before and came across her work and biography while doing some reading about her first husband, Paul Dunbar!  🙂

Best,

Prof. Jaime Weida

Title of Book About Trans* People and Prison

Hello All,

During Wednesday’s class I mentioned an excellent book on how Trans* people are targeted, marginalized, and abused by the prison system but I couldn’t remember the title.  I checked: it is Captive Genders: Trans Embodiment and the Prison Industrial Complex.  It is a collection of a series of essays on the subject with a foreword by CeCe McDonald.  I highly recommend it: CLICK HERE to buy it on Amazon.

Best,

Prof. Jaime Weida
