Reading, MAGIC, capitalism
Sidenote: I think I'd find "doing the reading" a lot more fun if I imagined myself as a sorcerer-in-training. Reading theory is actually me learning how to cast the spells that dismantle capitalism 🤖
Just finished the infamous first three chapters of Capital, and I'm coming out of it relatively unscathed. I'd like to thank David Harvey for his online lectures, Christian Fuchs for his supplementary book, and the Internet for providing these resources """free""" of charge. Here's to venturing onwards in this venerated tome!
(I'd also like to clarify that I'm on here as a user first and foremost! While I am interested in exploring the broader Fediverse for my research, I've yet to begin my program, so no official plan yet haha. If I do end up studying scholar.social (which I don't think I will), I'll be sure to abide by all of the necessary terms!!)
Hello everyone! I'm an incoming grad student in the Master of Environmental Studies program at the University of Pennsylvania. I'll be concentrating in Degrowth and Technology, with an interest in exploring how counter-hegemonic forms of social media can help cultivate socio-ecological liberation and flourishing. If there are any degrowthers on here, I'd love to get connected!
I'm also a classically-trained actor who enjoys memes, music, animation, dance, and peanut butter. 🤖
