G is for Gender 

G is for Gender I would like to take a second and contrast Merriam-Webster's definition of "gender" with Wikipedia's definition: Merriam-Webster defines gender as: the state of being male or female grammar : one of the categories (masculine, feminine, and neuter) into which words (such as nouns, adjectives, and pronouns) are divided in many languages Wikipedia …

G is for Graduation 

I'm graduating in approximately two weeks. It still hasn't quite sunken in yet, probably because I'm still in the midst of finals, but also because I've been putting in so much effort to set up a post-grad existence (job hunting, apartment searching, etc.) that I really don't feel "done." Which raises some of the same questions we've …

G is for Gaze 

I once saw a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream wherein a metatheatrical moment occurred that I would never forget. Strangely, I saw this production twice, primarily on account of aspired plans that did not come to fruition upon the second occasion. First I went alone; second I went with my friend “Dan.” Subsequent …

G is for Godot’s Paradox 

I was debating between “D is for Documentation” and “E is for Evaluation” for this post, because it’s about both, but it turns out I needed the letters. Such a sacrifice. Well, it’s also about the paradox of Godot, New Orleans (one of the socially engaged art projects in Artificial Hells), so I’m going with …

G is for Gratitude 

Lately, I have been thinking of the things that make me happy. They are also the things that are also connected with what makes me grateful. Yet, with thinking about those things I have come to the realization that this semester I have barely done any of those things! So, I have decided to remind …

G is for Grass 

A child said What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands, How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more than he. I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green stuff woven. Or I guess it is the handkerchief of …

G is for Tender Buttons 

These are some words knit together in the spirit of Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons. A Classroom A table and chairs. A room with no stairs. Chairs in a room with a table and chairs, where stairlessness lends to the sitting, unwittingly fitting the subjects in place. An hour of time. A slice of the …

G is for God 

1. I am most familiar with the Protestant Christian version of God. A being whose supreme goodness is overwhelming to the point of being inevitably misunderstood. Yet humans try to make sense of this benevolence, thinking of ways to please God in whatever form we suppose would please a being of his (always male in …

G is for Girls 

I found the discussion contrasting the private and public natures of females in Driscoll’s chapter, “In Visible Bodies” to be relevant and true to my own feelings of being a woman. Driscoll includes a passage from Gaines, who describes girls as “insular; they mostly hang out in pairs, rarely more than trios... You have to …

G is for Genre 

I was browsing through Netflix this weekend and couldn’t help but realize how dependent I was on the categories of movies/ tv shows to determine what it was I was planning to watch. Genres provide us with a schema for understanding artistic work. They allow us to categorize similar stories and styles, setting up a …

G is for Great Wall 

The Great Wall of China is considered to be the only man-made project visible from the moon. Although it was once thought to have been built entirely during the Qin Dynasty between 221 and 208 BC, it is now believed to have been started earlier. The Great Wall is called the "Ten-thousand-Ii Great Wall" in …

G is for The Grand Budapest Hotel MP 

Over the break I saw the new Wes Andersen movie The Grand Budapest Hotel. Just as in all of his movies this one has a very distinct look and aesthetic. He has a way of creating this whole world which looks just like our world but is somehow slightly different. Everything is perfectly placed in …

G is for Google front page doodles 

I turned on my computer, went to the google site, and saw the rectangular image on the front page. Usually I would be able to grasp what the images were referring to but this one was so abstract I wasn't able to recognize what it was about. I think it was my first time paying …

G is for Greatness 

A recent interview in The Atlantic with novelist Jennifer Percy (see percy article) and her decision to switch from a career in physics to writing in order to better understand and appreciate the world, got me (re)thinking of the conflict raised in class about scientific authority and the attendant aesthetic, epistemic, ontological, and political fallout. If …

G is for God’s Symphony 

Why do humans find the production of coordinated movement in response to music inherently pleasurable? As I was conducting research to find an answer to my question, I stumbled upon an article on the Scientific American called "Why do we like to dance -- and move to the beat?". It seemed relevant enough. In this …
