i know i'm always harping about my man Bananas, but his thoughts on rioting, partly inspired by Brixton 1981, are interesting if people want to look. The stuff about Teutonic knights is so fantastic but kinda true:

Para-Academia & Theory Fiction | Session 3: Nabokov, Coincidence and Otherwordliness

This post was made to the blog for Para-Academia & Theory Fiction v3

Para-Academia & Theory Fiction | Session 3: Nabokov, Coincidence and Otherwordliness, facilitated by Steve Aubrey 
Tuesday, August 23 at 8:00pm at Observatory 

Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov (1899-1977) is perhaps most famous for Lolita and Pale Fire, novels of startling linguistic and literary playfulness. But as his wife, Vera, wrote in a foreword to a collection of his poetry in 1979, the true watermark of Nabokov's work is the concept of "potustoronnost" or otherwordliness. Though much of Nabokov's work may seem straight-forward and realist, lurking underneath his fiction is an entire pantheon of ghosts, shades, demons and devils that comprise the true world of Nabokov's writings. 

READING ASSIGNMENT

Please read the following short stories by Nabokov: "Signs and Symbols" and "The Vane Sisters". They can be found here

I love universities and think they are pretty cool. Call me old-fashioned. But I want to find ways of supporting work outside of them, since I think that's the best way to change the inside of them.

 there is apretty easy and fun book called "zero" that might add to the class - it frames the history of math leading up to calculus - and the significance of calculus in an interesting way. and its a quick read.

"If a Tree Falls" The Earth Liberation Front

This post was made to the blog for Urban Foraging Group v3: Fall/Win Reading Group 2010-11


Earth Liberation Front. 2008, Woodinville, WA USA.

 

Although we haven't discussed contemporary eco-struggles in the reading group, I thought it might be interesting to note that the documentary film "If a Tree Falls", the story of the Earth Liberation Front is showing at IFC. Unfortunately the last screening is today at 6:30pm.

The documentary tells the radical history of the ELF, who's main focus is inflicting property damage on companies that capitalizing on nature, while focusing on the trial of a main member in the group. The story takes a turn when Earth Liberation Front path intersects with the development of new post-911 terrorism laws.
