The subject matter is great. The class environment is really questionable. Luckily I’ve got a few like-minded friends taking the course with me. We’re planning a takeover of the Freud conversation on Tuesday. Should be super interesting. :)

It’s called ‘History, Memory, and Haunting.’ We just started talking about trauma and personal/collective memory. It makes some sense, I guess, if they want us to sit here be all hyper-theoretical about interdisciplinary discourse of trauma and memory. I mean, the course is theoretical in foundation. I’m just annoyed I now have to read Freud who knew shit-all about…well…
It’s not very useful for my own interests because he (and the classmates) don’t think outside of their own pretty, constructed little academic boxes.
Sitting here on a Saturday night reading a bunch of psychology for an anthropology class—and all I really wanna do is work on a fellowship application. Ugh. Grad school.
No boundaries manoominike
With guidance from Lac Courte Oreilles School instructors and some creative engineering, a group of seniors has figured out how to get a schoolmate safely in a canoe and harvesting wild rice (manoominike) for the very first time.
From a stripped down wheelchair securely fitted to a custom canoe bracket, Arthur Fleming knocked manoomin today at Pacwawong Lake in northern Wisconsin. Born with spina bifida nearly 13 years ago, the 7th-grader joined the entire LCO middle & high school out on productive rice waters surrounded by bursting fall color. Back onshore at rice camp students took turns parching their harvest over a wood fire. By all measures it’s a memorable day in Ojibwe Country.
