“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

In Milwaukee

So here I am for the Society of Literature Science and the Arts. I'm doing two talks. My friend and colleague Cary Wolfe is keynoting. Douglas Kahn is here, yay! My friend Mark Payne is talking as is his friend and my classics advisor Brooke Holmes. UCD student Ted Geier. Derek Woods and Sophia Hsu my new Rice grad students are talking. Ian Bogost is talking. Judith Roof and Steve Shaviro. And so on!

I'll try to liveblog as much as I can.
