Slight change

Hi Students,

Please use the USPS box in front of Klapper 342, as stated in the previous post. I haven’t been able to bring consent form to campus as I had planned. I will send an electronic version that requires a simple response via the internet shortly. Thanks for your flexibility.


Hi Students,

I’ve left a USPS box in front of my office,


Please leave your zine in my office. An envelope on the door will have consent forms to quote your writing in future research. You are not obliged to sign these, but it would be a kind thing to do for future students and their instructors. Thanks for a great semester.

All the best,




Updates and Next Class Assignment

For class on May 9th, read to the end of part I (pg. 199).

Choose one of the following threadlines weaving through Beloved, and keep notes on it in your journal. Come prepared to explain how it continues and unfolds in the story. These threadlines are:

Ghosts as agents/artefacts of the past

Crossroads and liminality (threshold spaces, crossroads, borders, twilight, transition, etc.)

Kinship, weaving kin through story

Rememory—by the way, all students will be expected to explain rememory as they understand it at the end of the book.

Lastly, the final zine is due in a box at my office (Klapper 352) Wednesday the 23rd at 3. This way you can focus on the book and have an extra week to write and assemble your thoughts.

I am collecting journals for the last time on May 9th.
