reading

Today low-grade ill of some sort, maybe it's the malaise of air-conditioning in the humidity, I don't know. Reading Elizabeth Grosz's Volatile Bodies: Towards a Corporeal Feminism, loving it, writing books of notes. I might be auditing her seminar on Derrida in the fall at Duke, maybe her seminar on Irigaray in the spring. Also read some of Leo Bersani's "Is the Rectum a Grave?" and thought about how I feel way more kindred with and in agreement with what might be called queer theory than feminist theory.
