not too hot but just hot enough

hello, y'alls

I'm tamar. A recent graduate from UC Berekeley. majored in Gender and Women's Studies. So i've spent much of my time reading feminist and queer theory. Theorists such as Gayatri Spivak, Gloria Anzaldua, M. Jacqui Alexander, Chandra Mohanty, Judith Butler, Jack Halberstam, Chela Sandoval, etc., etc..

I am currently in the process of 1) beginning an internship for the Pacific Institute of Mental Health based in San Francisco writing a series of articles and then putting together a book that will be published by their press on Feminism and Ageism and especially the issue of language (considering the demographic they are most concerned with are people suffering from ddementia). So this will be a good opportunity for me to explore adventures within linguistic theory and maybe find some new avenues. and 2) I am also attempting to study for the GRE. I have discovered that being "smart" has almost nothing to do with it and in fact it may be detrimental to your score. Thinking about things, especially language, in an open and non-structured way has really been an issue for me here. But whatever. So, yes, my goals are to go to graduate school. Doctorate program preferrably. Something along the lines of comparative literature, transnational studies, critical theory or cultural studies, or a combination of all of these disciplines. i really like the interdisciplinary feilds. other than that....Photobucket
