There’s a journal called Concertina World.
Looking over the summer’s posts, I should obviously call this blog a reblog of Bibliolore! Thanks to Bibliolore for providing so much great content!!
Another Blackboard rant: everything in Blackboard that one creates for students is tied to grading. For example, the disappearing dropbox mentioned in my last post has been “converted” to an assignments. (Converted is just a nice way of saying it no longer has the option, I guess.) Ditto for the wiki. I want a wiki in my class to allow collaboration, organization, and quick notetaking. The Blackboard “wiki” offers none of those, and again it’s tied to grading. What if you just want a space where collaboration and participation can happen? Look for it somewhere else.
I do know how to code (not as well as a professional programmer), but I don’t call myself a digital humanist. Is that bad? I’m more about unmarked categories.
Sounding Out posted a review of David Novak’s Japanoise. The comments regarding the networks of music/sound circulation were quite interesting. Seth Mulliken writes about how Japanoise develops a theory of “feedback” in which the “transnational circulation of materials, ideas, and expressions constitutes a culture itself, one that is not distinct from either the Japanese or the U.S. manifestations of Noise music (17). This a welcome contribution to compositional and intersectional perspectives on cultural exchange.”
