The goal is to make it harder to point to the more quotidian acts of white supremacy by which we are surrounded in the same way.

A bit on the obverse: The most important novel I ever read was Song of Solomon, which made me stop writing fiction. Not only because it was clear that I would never produce anything that perfect, but because it was clear that the world did not need my stories. It needed hers. https://twitter.com/JHUPress/status/1158744738356453377

This is super-important. Also: there will be things that end up in the diss because of a committee member’s concerns rather than those of your argument. These should be the first things to go when you start revising it into a book. https://twitter.com/nancybaym/status/1159188721868185606
