    • The world’s languages, in 7 maps and charts — The Washington Post April 25, 2015
      This series of graphs, maps, and charts from the The Washington Post illustrates some fascinating information about the world’s languages. It’s not surprising that English is the most studied language in the world: But I did find this chart illustrating how many countries a given language is spoken in to be worth thinking …
    • Thinking about Barbara Walters’ Interview with Vili and Mary Kay Letourneau Fualaau April 13, 2015

    • Reading Journal: Verses of Forgiveness, by Myriam Aantaki — 2 March 17, 2015
      I continue to be fascinated with this book—part 1 of this reading journal is here—and with the effort Ahmed (the narrator) makes, even while he is planning a suicide attack against Israel, to imagine his Jewish father’s life. The author, Myriam Antaki, sets the two men up as almost mirror images of …
    • My Reading at the 2015 International Conference on Masculinities March 12, 2015
      ETA: There were some problems with the original version of the video. This one should be better. As well, the text of the poems, which contain explicit descriptions of sex and sexual violence, appear below. On March 5th of this year, I was privileged to perform some of my work, along with a …
    • Being a Survivor of Sexual Violence is a Way of Knowing The World March 6, 2015
      In a post I wrote a couple of weeks ago, I talked about how and when I choose to reveal to my classes the fact that I am a survivor of sexual violence. I have not written much, however, about how people other than my students, who have been unanimously supportive and …
    • From Guernica: “The Teaching Class,” by Rachel Riederer February 25, 2015
      This is a really interesting and thought-provoking essay that I think anyone concerned about the state of higher education should read. Riederer makes a complex argument. Here are some excerpts: The rise of adjunct labor in universities is also a student issue. Teachers’ working conditions are students’ learning conditions. And when …
    • The Politics of Being a Man Who Survived Childhood Sexual Violence 2 February 14, 2015
      (You can read Part 1 here.) I have been remiss in not telling you about a book in which two of my poems have been published, Voice Male: The Untold Story of the Profeminist Men’s Movement. Both poems are from my first book, The Silence of Men, and I am pleased that …
