I’m a PhD student in English at Wayne State, in Detroit, MI. And this is my blog. It’s still mostly an experiment.
Ideally, this is my space to bring ideas just past the thought-about stage: ideas about politics, critical theory, philosophy, and my main academic concerns: Modernism and American poetry. Something of a sci-fi fan as well. So. Rancière, Badiou, sometimes speculative realism; William Carlos Williams, Surrealism & NY School (Ashberry/O’Hara/Guest/Berrigan); Philip K. Dick, Ursula K. Le Guin, Samuel Delaney, China Miéville. More anarchist than Marxist when it comes down to it, I guess. Also, I am a fairly obsessive sports nut. Every fall my life is the Bears. Plus Bulls (Derrick Rose!). And I grew up a Twins fan, but living 1/2 mile from Comerica Park might change that. Whether sports will surface here remains to be seen. Probably they will.
