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. :)

taiboguy said: …what anthro class has you reading psych literature?

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.

These things actually permeate your brain and plant little seeds that people then carry around with them and influence how they behave. And it’s so important to analyze this, especially when you have an audience of MILLIONS.

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.

This is awesome :)
