Sorry for the delay. Here are the peer-reviewed articles I discussed in class concerning the debate of emotions. Enjoy.

and if you want to think about it in relationship to what counts as knowledge and who gets to decide what is knowledge, there is this – which might offer a suggestion for another approach as to what can start to be done
I came across these two articles today and immediately thought of what we have been doing in class. Though from really different perspectives, they overlap a great deal and both of them speak directly to your lives. Treat yourself to a few minutes dedicated to yourself – slow down long enough to read them and perhaps ponder them a bit. Enjoy.
np: Thomas Brinkmann “Walk with Me”

and since you probably “lost” it, here is the rubric:
Following today’s conversation about nuance and “no-easy” answers follows these three articles which all address the ways in which knowledge is accessed. What results is complicated but significant. Enjoy.

I saw this today and immediately thought of several things almost at once but for now I am going to leave aside the English teacher excitement of such a finding. Instead I want to think through this wearing my ToK beanie/toboggan. Read through this and see how much of this is similar to the piece we are reading in class about how a discipline is altered/created by the technology used. I am of the opinion that the humanities have only begun to understand what the computer can do and as time goes on, a paradigm shift is in the works – not unlike what happened to ethnomusicology with the advent of the phonogram. If this kind of thing strikes your interest, then look up the Stanford Literary Lab and Franco Moretti – they are seen as being on the cutting edge of this. Enjoy.
