The current reading pile, minus Leslie Reagan’s Dangerous Pregnancies: Mothers, Disabilities, and Abortion in Modern America, which I just started. I’m almost finished with Sheri Fink’s incredible investigation of modern (maybe/alleged) euthanasia at Memorial Hospital in New Orleans after Katrina,
Five Days at Memorial. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that long-form journalists could teach academics a few things about storytelling.
This pile also leaves out recent books by anthropologists Ken MacLeish and Karen Nakamura, as well as all of the library ebook a I stumble upon and then swear I’ll remember to read.
