YOU. RADIO. YOU. BLOOD. YOU. LOVE. YOU. RADIO. YOU. BLOOD.

Last week we discussed bell hooks’s “Eating the Other” in conjunction with the poem by Douglas Kearney entitled “Radio.” The texts opened up a great deal of personal experiences and allowed us to view them in a critical light. We were able to examine relations between individuals, often ourselves, framed in the relation between race and desire. bell hooks examined the way dark continents and similarly dark bodies shifted from being undesirable to desirable by the “the west.” Intimate interactions with dark bodies become “spice” and flavour to an otherwise tasteless white palate. “Radio” showed us how representations and desire of black bodies/voices shifted as a result of the radio.

Next week, we’ll be discussing the introduction and first chapter of Linda Tuhiwai Smith’s Decolonizing Methodologies.  As always, the readings will be found on the blog.
