Long Teaching Day
My god, so tired. Why, oh why, can I never seem to get a full night's sleep before my marathon six-hours of lecturing day? In the City this morning, in my undergraduate Digital Democracy, Digital Anti-Democracy course we are engaging the privatization of publicity, Doctorow on IP, Boyle on the Second Enclosure Movement, Bollier on commons, Astra Taylor on the People's Platform -- then in the afternoon it's Fanon's Black Skin White Masks, and Fanonian elaborations by Paul Gilroy on racialized infra-humanity and Kobena Mercer on fetishism in Mapplethorpe, also Laura Mulvey on fetishistic looking. Big day, expect blogging to be the usual Friday low to no.
