TODAY'S CLASS: pattern for paired readings
>>>NOTICE THIS SECOND SECTION OF THE COURSE ENDS WITH OUR PAPER SESSIONS 5 APRIL, which is next week
Go around and ask all: What are you doing in your papers?
THIS CLASS IS THE THIRD CLASS OF THE SECOND SECTION OF FOUR SECTIONS.
The second section is called <<Staying with the Trouble>>>
Why is this class called Breathing, Becoming, Together and Apart?
What does this mean? How many meanings could it have? Why might it matter? What does "mattering" do? How could it "matter" to you? How could it matter very differently to other feminists? to other ...what?

Linköping Tema Genus: the thesis tree
Svedmark: Co-creating Others: pp. 131-135:
=Speculators: "They feed us with speculative and alternative versions of the truth.... Flashback...." Fake? is it real? is that the most important thing?
=Helpers: "These "helpers' seem to be attracted to places where emotional content is shared freely, with few filters...." You may need to "join" to know about.
=Lurkers: "...they can be spotted every now and then when things get rough and situations demand action." Difficult to study....
=Other others: 1) those with honest intents. 2) Trolls: "to provoke, to upset and to do harm...." How does one tell which ones are which?
Svedmark: TechnoEmotions: pp. 161-181:
"Although this thesis is empirically dense my mission has never been to look at -- but through -- these sometimes extreme cases in search for postman relations and practices apart from our first encounter."
