charting my movements

I’ve already spent a good portion of October staying busy and mobile, a trend that promises to continue. This weekend I will be in New York City, attending Jacobin Magazine’s first event, a debate on #occupywallst on Friday, Oct. 14. I’m looking forward to the discussion, and hope to have some more observations of the DC occupations — yes, we have more than one! — to contribute.


Next weekend, October 22, I’m presenting a paper at the 2011 meeting of the American Studies Society in Baltimore on go-go music, informal markets, and urban space. I’m joining by two people doing excellent work on Mid-Atlantic music: Natalie Hopkinson, who has literally written the book on go-go; and Al Shipley, who is literally writing the book on Baltimore club. We go on at 10 AM. Check out the full listing of music panels at the ASA.

  1. You mean you “go-go on at 10am”? See what I would have done there? If I was writing this blog it would be unbearably adorable.

    It was an interesting and lively discussion… surprised the video isn’t up yet on the Jacobin site.
