Everything we read in class, as well as what we didn’t.
Oh, thank you so much for this list! It’s been awesome to read your lectures over the past several months.
Thanks for all the readings - so much to dig into.
and about this: 'I’ve found that I really enjoy doing this sort of thing (and writing syllabuses and lectures), and so I’ll be writing a future essay on my research process for an essay—then the essay itself will come out the next week.' A born teacher, I think (well, all your essays teach us, are written to do this) - and you love it!
I loved all of our readings, especially the ones on colonialism...such an eye opening experience...Kincaid and Walcott!
Taste Makers by Mayukh Sen is on my list to read!
This is so great -- thanks for putting it together. I've loved this series. (Possibly because I masochistically miss being in grad school, ha.)
One related topic that I love to see you cover is how you personally grapple with being a non-Puerto Rican, white American who is not a native Spanish speaker, living in Puerto Rico. All the layers of that. I lived for almost a decade in a place with a very strong from here/not from here dichotomy (New Orleans), which I think has given me a lifelong sensitivity to the difficulty of living responsibly in a place where you will always be an outsider. Especially if you are coming in with privileges not shared with the majority of the place where you live.
