Nice! Let me know how it is, since I haven't read that one. Also, I'd suggest you check out that Žižek book if you get the chance, although I don't expect you to agree with him. I'd be interested in your reaction, though. It's a very short book, about 150 pages.

For those who already despise Žižek, here's a great little article that will make you hate him even more:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/20...-people-boring

Quote:
"For me, the idea of hell is the American type of parties. Or, when they ask me to give a talk, and they say something like, 'After the talk there will just be a small reception' – I know this is hell. This means all the frustrated idiots, who are not able to ask you a question at the end of the talk, come to you and, usually, they start: 'Professor Žižek, I know you must be tired, but …' Well, fuck you. If you know that I am tired, why are you asking me? I'm really more and more becoming Stalinist. Liberals always say about totalitarians that they like humanity, as such, but they have no empathy for concrete people, no? OK, that fits me perfectly. Humanity? Yes, it's OK – some great talks, some great arts. Concrete people? No, 99% are boring idiots."

I don't mind reading things I disagree with, as long as it shines some new light on whatever the subject may be.

Every time I read Zizek I can not help but read it in his voice! lol and on top of it, in my head, he's touching his face and sniffling etc.

I really do enjoy reading the guy. I check his subreddit almost every week.

I do the same thing. Unlike many writers, he actually writes in the same tone that he speaks in, so it's easy to transpose his voice onto his texts.

I've tried, but haven't been able to track it down. I only have Netflix Instant Video, so my choices are limited. Eventually I'll buy it if I can find it cheap and/or used.

It's probably been 15 years since I read C&P, but I remember enjoying it a lot more than most "classics".

yeah I'm trying to work my way through some "classics". I've always been more of a weird fiction, bizarro and horror guy, but I figure I should try and get some of the classics down (since I only took a handful of literature courses during college)

if you're teaching Rhetoric, Jeremy, check out James Berlin. He's a Rhetoric and Composition scholar who tries to make a case for reintroducing classical rhetoric in the modern classroom. There's also The Rhetorical Tradition which is edited by Patricia Bizzell, one of the bigwigs in Rhet/Comp theory

Unfortunately neither author is on the list of approved texts from which to choose. I have the option of using just a reader, but also to throw in a "trade book" that focuses on one particular issue. Here's the list:



Any recommendations? I'm really liking The Shallows so far, since it draws from many, many fields of knowledge (history, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, etc.).

I have till July 16th to make my final decisions.

Ive read Eating Animals by JSF. For a hot button topic it's actually an enjoyable book.

I meant more for your own edification. Your students would be bored to tears by the books I suggested.

They Say/I Say is one of the most popular freshman books to use. A couple colleagues I know who are pretty picky really like it. I've only read a few of the tradebooks, but I think it might be cool to use Persepolis since it's a graphic novel
