Duke University Press is having a 50% off sale through the end of this month, so I ordered two of their recent releases. Brim, Matt. Poor Queer Studies: Confronting Elitism in the University.

Books Acquired Recently

Coleman, Wanda. Wicked Enchantment: Selected Poems. Edited by Terrance Hayes. Boston: Black Sparrow Press, 2020. I love Coleman’s work and am sad that she is not more well-known or more frequently read. I am very excited that this posthumous Selected Poems has come out so that new readers can discover her.

Dentz, Shira. Sisyphusina. N.p.: PANK Books, 2019. I am a fan of Dentz’s previous work, but hadn’t had a chance to buy her new poetry collection yet.

Trans*: A QuickContinue reading “Books Acquired Recently: All Queer Edition”

Books Acquired Recently: Quarantine Edition

I ordered a bunch of books recently because I am not sure how long the pandemic self-isolation situation will last or how long it will still be possible to acquire new books–my local Barnes & Noble closed even before New York’s shelter in place edict went into effect, and many independent bookstores are no longerContinue reading “Books Acquired Recently: Quarantine Edition”

Sabbatical Productivity: March

I am on sabbatical this semester and have been keeping a list in my journal of the academic activities I engage in. This practice is partly for myself, so that I make sure I am using the time productively, and partly for my institution, which requires me to write a report about the sabbatical onceContinue reading “Sabbatical Productivity: March”
