Yes, that is correct. I am going to engage in a vehement flamewar with you but only to secretly enrage Ymir's blood who is trying his damndest to get me to flame him. It will be glorious.

I am not trying to get you to flame me. I am reminding people about your blog.

Hey! Middle Eastern Studies! :glare:

The fun part was where we were defining the Middle East.

I'm still not sure what's in or out. Iran is a maybe. Afghanistan is not in, don't let them tell you otherwise.

Whoa, Drusus, YB totally blogburned you. Ha! While you were talking about flaming, he flamed you to a crisp.

Watser?, what about Turkey? Crispy, flame-crisped Turkey?

Also yeah, I took several women's studies classes.

One was a literature class, one was a philosophy class, one was a sociology class, and the other two were specifically women's studies, which basically meant an interdisciplinary blend of history, sociology and philosophy (heavier on the history in the 101 class, heavier on the philosophy in the intro to feminist thought class).

They all involved reading essays or books and writing about them, and discussion.

Thanks to everyone for your insight! I'm totally excited to learn on the topic, but as always I'm ascared to be out of my comfort zone. It's a 4000-level class (senior year type thing) but like, you know, whatever!

Like ES, I am mathsy/sciency, but one of the learning experiences I most value was a step away from that background and into a sociology course. It was a revelation largely because it was far away from my then stock-in-trade.

I would hazard a guess that a pro-gay bias will not remove the need to do some serious work, but it will make the work engaging and you'll have no problems with motivation.

Mine is in fall, so can I just have all your papers and stuff when you're done? :muahaha:

I'll still exchange friendship bracelets if you want, though.

One must have goals.
:lol: Silly Demi. Barnes & Noble will be out of business by then! On the plus side, you can live in one of their abandoned stores instead of under that bridge.

You should still talk about your class here at :ff: anyway.

I remember livius talking enthusiastically about Foucault's The History of Sexuality, though I can't remember the context, and I'd also be interested in discussing anything you happened to be reading. :yup:

AND HOW! :happy:

Take home "midterm" due today. I had a week to do it, I banged it out in a hour this morning. I'm reading over it (for typoes or whateves) and all I can think is "I can't believe I get college credit for this". Seriously, it's like getting credit for my forum posts here. My forum posts. laaaaaaaaaaaaawl!
