Homeless Adjunct: Building Community from Brokenness

Migrant Intellectual

I’m thinking a lot about Jean Vanier these days; I’m working on some posts about his work here at the start of what I hope will be a break-out moment for the Adjunct Nation:

I’m also convinced now that my work in the 90s was also an annoucement of this moment in the Adjunct Nation (Dartmouth MA thesis, “The (Subversion of the ) Imperial Will: A Study of Power in Selected Works by Herman Melville)

http://libcat.dartmouth.edu/record=b2655470~S1

I’ve long contended that Ishmael’s narrative is a study in psychic and post-colonial resistance to the imperial will of Ahab. Problem: in retelling the story of the White Whale, Ishmael pretty much goes insane–more a shuffle than a step away from the suicidal tendencies (“pistol and ball”) he describes at the start of the novel.

Anyway.
Couldn’t resist (wink).
