Do Women Exist?

from Identities—What Are They Good For?, Volume 20, Number 2

We American women do now find ourselves in a bit of an existential predicament with regard to the being-ness of being a woman.

The Walking Wounded

from The Post-Modern Self, Volume 19, Number 1

We talk about a suicide contagion’s progression across a given community as though it were a biological phenomenon, an epidemic without conscious direction.

Housework

from Work in the Precarious Economy, Volume 18, Number 1

Housekeeping doesn’t just enable us to dwell; housekeeping is dwelling, and also it is thought.
