My first attempt at a blog mash-up was not successful. I have spent the past 10 (or more) days trying to put my entries together in a way that would generate an academic journal-worthy article. Trying is the key word. Trying and failing. But, maybe failing here isn’t so bad. I think that that mash-up (in which I combine Horton, We Care and feminist ethics of care) shouldn’t be the first one I write. Instead, I need to finish up the article I started on Judith Butler, troublemaking, virtue and Foucault. Here are the entries that I will use in this mash-up:
- My 100th Post: On Foucault’s “What is Critique?,” Butler’s “What is Critique? An Essay on Foucault’s Virtue,” and how I will frame the second part of my essay on troublestaying as virtue.
- Judith Butler and Virtue: The Starting Point: A reflection on Butler’s reference to Aristotle.
- My Presentation: My FEAST presentation.
- How Can it Already be September 18th? Some reflections on my upcoming presentation and a discussion of why I want to link troublemaking with virtue.
- In honor of my 50th post! Some thoughts about troublemaking, its ethical value, and the shift in Butler’s work from Gender Trouble to Undoing Gender.
- Judith Butler wants us to disobey. Why? Exactly: On why, the value of asking questions, and not obeying.
So, in my first entry about my blog mash-up project, I asked if anyone had any good mash-ups for me. No response. While I still haven’t found any mash-ups that I really like, I did find this very disturbing one:
That’s right. You’ve just been rickrolled. And, okay, this video isn’t really a mash-up (or is it?). No worries. My project of combining these different entries isn’t really a mash-up either. Maybe I need to call it something else…
