fall semester sigh of relief
Anyway, last night was the joint presentation for my Cultural Theory and Visual Culture seminar. Cultural Theory and Visual Culture are totally not my strengths. I'm way out of my comfort zone in that class (but doing fine, thank you very much), I am not a huge fan of group work (personally, not pedagogically), and the prof is one of those rockstarish folks you really want to impress. Thus the stress.
But! The presentation was on Foucault (a fave), specifically Discipline and Punish (also a fave), the fellow I was presenting with did a great job with his part and we had zero issues with division of labor and so forth, and I got to talk about The Simpsons a lot. What's not to love?
