Teaching In The Homestretch...
William Burroughs, Elizabeth Grosz, Aldo Leopold in my graduate fetishism seminar in the City today, Terence and Roman satire at Berkeley tomorrow...

Teaching Cicero's invectives through late Roman Republican elections in the midst of Trumpmania was an utterly terrible demoralizing idea, I must say.
