The Current Reads
I'm enjoying re-reading Mark Haddon's 2004 The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. It's amazing how much depth and insight can come from a second read (and a decade of growth). I have wanted to pick it back up since I heard a talk by my dissertation director, David Mitchell, at Composing Disability in spring of this year. I finally took the plunge and opened it back up after seeing several copies this past week in the classroom of my cohort lead at the SDSU teaching credential program. Now, the problem is putting it down to make sure I'm getting my other work done.
I am also reading Cary Wolfe's Wolfe 2012 Before the Law: Humans and Other Animals in a Biopolitical Frame. So far, it's as excellent a read as all of his other books have been. He is simply an outstanding thinker in his field and I always enjoy the way he considers ideas. I finally got around to searching him out on the internet and was pleased to find some videos of him giving talks, teaching, and participating in discussions.
I suppose the internet isn't all bad.
