RIP, Edward Said

Via the New York Times comes news of the death of Edward Said, who had been fighting leukemia for several years.

The obituary interestingly reflects our current cultural obsessions, I think; “Leading Advocate of Palestinians” makes the headline, while Orientalism doesn’t appear until paragraph 21.

His loss will be felt deeply, both within the academy and in the political realm.
