Comments on: Mark Fiege’s Republic of Nature at the OAH, April 20 History and sexual politics, 1492 to the present Tue, 23 Sep 2014 15:56:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Indyanna Fri, 27 Apr 2012 22:18:18 +0000 Only time to listen through the 8:32 mark so far. I wish we had internet service on the screens on top of the cardio machines at our gym instead of 107 channels of spazmodic fluff. How true, as M.B. Norton acknowledges, that a critic or reviewer ineluctably tends to see the majesty of the parts of a broad synthetic work that are farthest from their own fields of specialized knowledge but light coming through holes in the sections that relate to the latter. And nice to know that students’ pointed questions at the earliest stages of a project still provoke years of followup work. How can they complain about hours (even “days!”) in the library in pursuit of a 10-page paper assignment?

I ask you?!?
