Washing clothes for a trip to Philly tomorrow (no laptop, no road-blogging).
Trekking to Brotherly Love for a grand-stately release reception for Espejos
y Ventanas. I’d say more about the book beyond interesante but
for a heap of reading to get done before tomorrow.
All kinds of buzz on the net today about the beta release of Google
Scholar. I book-marked it; will put it to use. But after a few cursory
searches (artificial searches…looking for exactly nothing), ambivalence

up PDFs (Paper-Digm Fe’you). Jeeps, I sound rotten and ungrateful!
Emph. on post-colonialism in my Mon-Tue courses this week. Reading Lu
on Anzaldua & Lundsford, Anzaldua on the new mestiza, Deepika Bahri on
Spivak & Bhaba, Hardt & Negri on Bhaba and nation-states, Bhaba on
Fanon, and Haraway’s cyborg manifesto. And some chapters from
Canagarajah’s Geopolitics of Academic Writing.
