On the Other Hand, Ken

...It's all good, McKenzie Wark. I like your intelligence and the clarity! And you introduced me to a new sensation, for which I've invented a new term: to Williamsplain. This is to explain Raymond Williams to a student in the lineage of Raymond Williams, who heard the great man on occasion, and who was taught by his student Terry Eagleton as he chatted with the Cuban Embassy (true story) hahahaha :)

A lot of that 1992 style cultural studies (I used to teach it then, a lot, both graduate and undergraduate, at NYU) was somehow caught in Williamsplaining. That eventual gigantic Routledge volume...
