the things we do with our privileges
like, for example, spending thousands of wholly unnecessary dollarsto perfect your isolation. is it just me, or is this article really, really sad? (maybe not on its own; maybe only in relation to the news from the rest of the world?)
welcome to my blog. i'm a ph.d. candidate in political science at yale, a native midwesterner, and a happy californian. right now my research is about armed organizations and how they organize their violence against noncombatants, or fail to. i'm also interested in intentional community, gender in the academy, grad school pedagogy, fat politics, the religious left, my partner, our local farmers' market and idiosyncratic capitalization practices.
