Ave, Charles!

Two Liminality essays of interest: the first explores issues of Koreanness, foreignness, the way we unconsciously assess someone's intelligence according to his language ability, and problems with overly hierarchical thinking. The second is much more personal and deals with Charles's realization that he's not going to be able to finish his doctoral diss before his advisor is due to retire. Charles and I had talked about this via email, but I had no idea that things were as bad as his essay describes. Charles is tough, though, and he'll fight through this.
