while I wait to organize a bunch of in-progress works and recent themes from book chapters published into a coherent whole for another book project – am wondering if I should actually blog… at length.
Part of me is just a bit tired – but the other part of me wants to share my thoughts and fill gaps in what I might have written in the most recent MS I sent out and just in general be a writer again. Not constantly jumping to producing according to deadline.
Well – let’s see… I have to write three pieces on (subalternity, diasporas, networks, platforms) Affect and social media – in relation to two different kinds of online/offline communities -
one in relation to youth, digital diasporas, social media and virtual worlds through international contexts (where US youth also count as one of several inter-national contexts).
another in relation to craft communities and networked affect
forthcoming paper presentations at conferences will take both these up and yes they continue and connect (with) what i started in recent publications – including the book-length MS I just mailed to my publishers.
I should also probably rework the Cambridge Platforms conference presentation into a paper for the special issue… (this connects subalternity and affect with non-profit presences online – and actually also connects with craft communities research – so it bridges from my recent book-length MS – chapters 1 and 2 espectially – and the work I will be presenting at AOIR – hopefully have written it for Ken and Susaana before then…)
Still – there are so many thoughts and reflections that happen – which I cant and wont put down in public space anyway.
just a thought.
In the interim. so to speak.
