These are both long-term projects. I try not to write critique without also offering a vision of alternatives. But I don’t enjoy writing any of this as grand and abstract theory. I much prefer to tell a good story and maybe create a little new theory in the process. As I have written more, I have become more conscious about what I do in the way of story making. Here it is: I write about things that are familiar to and taken for granted by my audience, and I defamiliarize them. Remember When Writing Was Fun?
