A blog for knitters, philosophers, knitting philosophers, philosophizing knitters, and those who love them (and their dogs).

One of my advisers, Georgia Warnke, has a new book coming out this December from Cambridge University Press. It's not just a "philosophy" book or a "theory" book, it's also a really good read, well written, easy to understand and very interesting. I have read it twice in manuscript form and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in issues of race, sex, and gender. Georgia worked her savvy so that it will be available in paper back immediately, making it affordable for everyone. The book also comes with a helpful index, which was done by yours truly (toot, toot... that's the sound of me tooting my own horn). The book's original title was After Sex, but apparently that was too much for Cambridge, la-ti-da. Anyways the title is a reference to Alasdair McIntyre's classic work After Virtue.
