Grad bloggy day

There are no blogs due for undergrads today–you’re working on your midterms.

Our grad students will be getting involved by posting either about the postcolonial readings they did (Bhabha, Spivak), or about their final paper projects. I encourage undergrad students to keep up on what their graduate classmates are up to.

We’ll resume regular undergrad blogging next week, with Cunard’s Negro Anthology. I’m hoping that Joshua’s presentation on Michael North’s Dialect of Modernism will help us engage with the tricky issues of imitation, appropriation, mask and dialect, authenticity and abstraction, etc., and how these are/aren’t core elements of modernist writing.

Bon courage!
