Long Teaching Day
This morning in the City from nine to noon in my undergraduate Planetary Thinking and Environmental Justice course we will be talking about soil-destroying industrial energy-intensive petrochemical monocultural BigAg, and Zerzanian anti-civilizationism, seed-saving, and permaculture alternatives; and then from one to four in my graduate Introduction to Critical Theory lecture Althusserian interpellation, Arendt's gap between the past and future, and the usefulness to William Burroughs of paranoia in a magical universe, with Kafka parables popping up a few times along the way. It's exhausting just to think about it. So, the usual long Friday, and for blogging, I suspect, the usual low to no.
