September 21 - UVic Bookstore

The siren call, the siren call of an academic bookstore....
  • ed. Simon Glendinning, Arguing with Derrida (a series of papers on deconstruction delivered in front of Jacques Derrida, who responded to each one, as well as a series of pointed and thorny questions that he answered off the cuff -- $17.98)
  • Fredric Jameson, Archaeologies of the Future: The Desire Called Utopia and Other Science Fiction ("In an age of globalization characterized by the dizzying technologies of the First World, and the social disintegration of the Third, is the concept of utopia still meaningful?" -- $31)

oh man, the first one sounds like a slog if you don't mind me saying so :-)

I don't mind you saying so -- but it actually looks terrific! Derrida's painfully obscure most of the time, kind of a performance artist, but there's real force to his delivery here, and I think it might work really well next time I have to teach from him.
