Long Teaching Day
This morning in "What Is Compelling?" we are screening and discussing Cronenberg's film "A History of Violence" (an allegory of post-911 American murderousness which also critiques filmic representations of violence more generally) and then later today in "Patriarchal Conventions and Convictions in Greece and Rome" we continue our readings of Cicero, turning to his De Oratore. My cold is somewhat diminished but I'm quite tired and the day will be long -- here's hoping I don't exhaust myself into a relapse.
