My semester has begun and I’m working on a book proposal. I’ll tell you all about it if it goes anywhere. These things are eating up some of my writing time.
The most fun piece to write was on Viking Women Warriors – History is not a straitjacket for fantasy. But we do need more diverse books.
I’m deeply concerned about academic freedom and I wish more scientists would get involved in this case in Illinois. I offered some opening thoughts on how to persuade our scientist friends who think it’s just not their concern.
Finally – two stories of involuntary commitment. The details of both remain unclear to me, but I’m watching them and the broader argument that says the solution to police killing folks with disabilities is to lock up the folks with disabilities for their own safety.
And that’s the week on the blog! See you tomorrow and happy Sunday.
