This week:

Jameson and Baulliard
Or something like that.

17th Century:
Donne's Essays in Divinity
Donne's.... Sermon from something-or-another.
I don't even have the text! HOW EXCITING.

Victorian Poetry & Prose:
Matthew Arnold's Culture and Anarchy.
But I also need to read Marcus Aurelius and some of his criticism essays for better understanding.

Feminism & Orienalism:
Baghdad Burning. It's a seminar. I've pretty much read the entire blog, so I think I'm good on that front. But I have a seminar in two weeks' time for something else.

Go me!

How about everybody else? =)

Uhm... Jan 16 reading list?
Last week: I got all of Newman's Discourses done, but none of the reflective essays >_<

Of the two poems by Donne, I didn't get to read one of them. But I got my Feminism readings done, as well as for Postmodernism. That's good, right? ;_;

This week... Uhm, I'm not sure where I placed my reading lists, so I'll have to go by memory. I know I have Donne's satire, the rest of the Feminism coursepack. I have to start reading Calvino's If On A Winter's Night A Traveller... and some of Matthew Arnold's poetry.

What're you guys reading for this week?

Reading list for this week, Jan 10 - 13
Two articles: Jacques Derrida and Paul Maltby.
Comments: My prof has warned us that these first readings are probably the hardest theory essays we'll be reading through the term. She did this to us last semester in the Modernism class, too.

17th Century:
John Donne's The Flea and The Canonization
Comments: I don't actually have the textbook for this yet O_o;; But I'm sure if all else fails, I can find them on the internet. I've actually read the Flea before. It's cute.

Feminism and Orientalism:
Three articles: Majid, Nader, Göle
Comments: Like above, I don't actually have the coursepack yet. It's for Thursday, though. But still. Stupid bookstore.

Last four Discourses of John Henry Newman's Idea of a University
Comments: Done the sixth one! That's the seventh, eighth and ninth to go! .... *sigh*

Now let's see which ones I actually do!

I really really should write my syllabus for next semester.

What am I doing?

Watching movies and petting my cat. This is her:

Current Mood: bored

Can someone say ZzzzZZZzz?
I had five of John Newman's Discourses to read for Victorian Poetry and Prose.

I probably spent more energy ranting about his writing style than reading it, but once I got into it, I guess it was okay.

Out of five, I got through half of the second one.

I will have to read all nine by next week.
