Next week’s blog response is below this post.
For those of you who are interested, the Institute for the Study of Women & Gender in the Arts and Media here at Columbia is co-sponsoring an event on Darfur. For those who go, if you want to write a little something about your thoughts on the symposium or exhibit, I’ll give extra credit.
