“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

OOO Class Auditing Progress

This is going to be the biggest grad class since I taught cultural studies at NYU in 1994! I'm happy to keep adding people if you are interested. Back in 94 I had 100 grad students, many of them standing or sitting in the aisles. Quite frankly it was one reason I didn't continue working there. The then dean of the humanities thought cultural studies was big trouble and it didn't help that his mortal enemy, the dean of social sciences, thought my class was the most popular in the humanities that year (she was correct).
