Big Man

Around Thanksgiving Tavia Nyong’o asked me to write about the Big Man for the Social Text blog and so I sat there wordlessly for awhile then wrote this about his Big Sovereign Electorate (BSE), then edited it, then felt its belatedness, then decided to follow my own principle, which is that you have to show up with whatever you have to fight the unacceptable situation. This is what I had. http://socialtextjournal.org/big-man/.

Today I woke up writing protest slogans in my head, though, as though my genre flailing is on autopilot at this point.  La Lucha Continua, people!

Also, for those unfamiliar with this site, on the left hand side of this page, under “Pages,” are conference papers for which people have asked –entire panels, including other people’s papers.

I was just discussing the Trump article with my brother, who suggested that Trump is the social media president in the sense that minutely tailored internet worlds make a combover president possible by allowing the world to act more like a precisely angled mirror than used to be possible.

That is *so* interesting. Projection was of course always possible, and the persistent takedowns of countermedia ruffle the hair/defenses constantly too: but I love the idea that the more boutiqued media focus becomes the more effective the combover defenses are, Thanks! Will think about it.
