(Charlie Bertsch and) I give you Bad Subjects #74: Intermedia, which features contributions from a few familiar faces and some new ones. It’s also got some of my favorite features of Bad Subjects issues in years past — “open” contributions, interviews, and of course, an article on the Christian right.
Fred’s visit was outstanding. His talk was animated, the room was packed, the dinner was lovely, etc. etc. Except that the first night he was here, our sick cat puked on his coat, which had fallen to the floor in the middle of the night. So I had to lend him one of my old winter coats, which was comically large on him, but since he’s so tall he could pull it off. I should have taken a picture. Anyway, he said that he felt like me walking around Montreal. I replied that he was simply taking up all the space to which he is entitled.
This week will be another light one for blogging. We’ve got another guest speaker coming in that HPS series I linked to in my last post, and I’m off too on Wednesday to NYU to give a talk in the Music Department’s lecture series entitled “Recalibrating the Sound of Music.” I’m planning to read a short statement in support of the striking students before I give the talk. I’ll post it here.
