History of Sexuality
I mainly spent this week reading Michel Foucault: History of Sexuality volume 1 and 2.
- The first one is highly relevant for queer theory, but the second is more of a detailed history of the practices and thoughts of ancient Greece, therefore a fast read.
- I think Foucault is so redundant in his writing, so it’s okay to read him fast, because everything comes back and gets repeated multiple times.
- I remembered everything from volume 2 from when I read it in 2009. (Volume 1 I felt I read in another way now than back in 2008.)
As I conclude in one of the breaks: I’m really good! And that means it’s time to move on. From keywords to Japanese words and kanji compunds. Of course I’ve done this the whole time, but I mean in a more structured way: to connect every jōyō kanji with at least one word and thereby a reading.
Drinks with S and his friends at Südblock on Thursday. I left early. Bars are not as fun since I stopped drinking alcohol. Plus I wanted to go home to my dear Michel!
Today (Sunday) I started drawing again for the first time since this PhD began. Drawing takes time. And it is soooo great to be at it again! I lift the pen and the hours pass by. My fieldwork will include printing and selling a dōjinshi, so that’s what I’m creating.
Some unexpected errands came up.
Daily walks. The snow is completely gone. Cleaned up and threw away old papers mostly in the weekend, with moral support from A.
Headaches yesterday and today. Must rest.
