welcome to our class blog. this is a place you can post videos, websites, observations, songs, and anything else that crosses your mind on the topic of race, class, gender, sexuality, or able-ism. we will often use blog discussions or examples to enrich our in-class conversation, and most importantly, this is your easiest vehicle for steering the class toward things that interest you rather than what interests me.

Frida Kahlo, Self Portrait with Collar of Thorns, 1940
