Another Teaching Day
I have a sore and stuffy nose this morning. Once upon a time that would be a minor annoyance, now, after my epic bleeding episode and hospitalization a few weeks backs, it means full on existential panic. Highly enjoyable. Dreading somewhat the ordeal of commuting in a packed BART train to and from the City today. Anyway, it's another teaching day. This week I'll be talking about Thucydides and the "ideology of facticity" that drives his Eyewitness Epic and the personal trauma and also patriarchal anxiety underlying it.
