Let me cut to the chase. I just graduated from college with two majors – English and Film. While I loved the film half of my degree, I adored my English classes. Tackling the implications created by Time magazine covers post-9/11, or discussing the significance of Karen Owens’ PowerPoint in the ever-apparent gender bias on college campuses, or analyzing the contradictions in contemporary American legislation and why such peculiar things like our prison system or the prohibition of recreational drugs deserves further scrutiny are all the topics I sincerely miss discussing in my classes and on paper.
And it is because of me missing them so much that I started this blog. I simply need the outlet to analyze something like 9/11 for its impact on gender relations in this country or scrutinizing American imperialism in topical journalism. I’m doing this for ultimately self-serving reasons: to satisfy my need for critical writing.
But if you’re interested in seeing what I think about a new book, article, piece of legislation, story, and what the implications of such are, stick around. I’ll have a new article up every Monday for those with some free time.
Take care and thanks for reading,
