Okay, Lani and I talk too much and Lani is always on point soo this is part 1 of my interview with Lani. In two weeks (maybe next week?) I will put up the second part. In this part we talk about her journey to PhD work, what she’s teaching, how much she loves teachers, and her observational tips.
This week’s syllabus:
To read: I’m reading Lindy West’s Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman. As a loud women myself I love hearing that I am not alone. On a side note I tweeted to her about something and I apparently set off the trolls and dudes, from 2 tweets interacting with her I was called a cunt by at minimum 45 strangers on the internet in the course of 10 minutes. If you want a peek into her experience here is her interview on this American Life.
To read (2): Instead of listening this week I will share the statement from the unconscious woman that was assaulted at Stanford. Read it.
To watch: So I’m watching Being Mary Jane with Gabrielle Union. If you want some slightly trashy and hugely engaging summer binging the first two seasons are on Netflix.
