some self-definition and summer plans

This summer is shaping up really well--I have a lot to do to prepare for my BA thesis next semester, I'm going to revise my Butler paper, and I'm going to try to blog here more frequently. As I delve into theory more and more, I realize that I need to go back and read the stuff I really don't want to read, namely all the old white guys. But it will be okay, we'll survive together.

Here's my theory reading list for the summer:
Butler again--reading Gender Trouble and Undoing Gender
Foucault's History of Sexuality, at least volume one.
Sandoval's Methodology of the Oppressed
and then a list of heavy hitters that I'll compile later. Probably some Hegel and Lacan since I'm reading so much Butler. Oh, and Barthes for the GRE, as well as some more general intro to theory books.

I'll also keep doing some more current responses to things going on in the world, like yesterday's post, which got a sort of derailed response at the Feministing community blog.

So that's the plan so far. Obviously this plan is lopsided and doesn't have a lot of what I really must read.
