December 25th, 2009

Okay, this has definitely been the longest I’ve ever gone without posting to Heroine Sheik. My poor, poor sex and technology baby. Anyways, contrary to popular opinion (or what I can assume of it) I am not dead, I’ve only disappeared into the black hole that is academia. Now that I have a month-ish off between semesters, I hope to join the ranks of the living — by which I mean living bloggers, I suppose.

Let it be noted, my internet disappearance has not been in vain. After an intense first half of December, I finished not one, not two, but three term papers on…

“Rewriting Lolita: Nabokov Slash Fiction and the Reader as Literary Rebel”
One of my all-time favorite books + close readings of hot and heavy FanFiction.net stories = a very happy, nerdy Bonnie.

“Structuring the Erotic: Creating a Taxonomy of The Eleven Thousand Rods
Okay, that one might sound less interesting, but it basically involves making a big chart of all the sex acts in a violent erotic novel. Thank you, Apollinaire, for introducing the surrealists to Sade, but I could have done without that scene with the giant spike. Maybe.

“Displaced, Dismembered, Displayed: Plastinated Anatomy Exhibits and Narratives of Immigration”
Just think about corpses. Then think about them some more. Welcome to my world.

Ah academia, land of protocol. I have yet to figure out what the protocol for making available (or not) unpublished graduate papers is. Is that somehow less than humble? Does it render them unpublishable in the future? If I can find a good excuse, I’ll certainly push my work out there for all you nice, masochistic people who really want 20 pages on how Lolita finds her way into the X-Men universe as a mutant whose power is to emit arousing pheromones.

In the meantime, happy (belated and/or still approaching) holidays. May your winter break, however short, be full of reading and games and then more reading. Ooh, also sleep. But also reading.

P.S. Tell me that Santa mask isn’t creeeeeeeeeepy. Redheads of the world unite and such, but still.

    I just put them on my website. I don’t figure anyone is much concerned with juvenilia except biographers. If you do want to publish them somewhere, just do a little editing and that resets the copyright clock for the work. Most collections of academic writings are made up of pieces that you could download off of JSTOR if you really wanted (which isn’t free but is widely available for academics) but it’s more convenient to have them all in one book.

    Yeah, I’ve been sharing my papers with my Livejournal crew, though my writings in academia are only shared with my fellow nerds, since my studies tend to focus on video games and nerds.

    Dead bodies sound interesting though. I recall Davis’ Science and Technology club taking a field trip and discussing the exhibit’s ethical concerns. If I recall, the bodies may have a less than ethical source from money starved families?

    And violent sex acts being charted sounds like extremely dreadful work. I’ve read those papers on pornography and the media that do the bean counting technique, and if doing the data collection is as dull as reading it at times, I am sorry. Then again, you get to actually see and read the pornographic materials, which might be a little bit better, even with a giant spike.

    Welcome back, Bonnie – Your twitter feed is fascinating, but no substitute for your longer-form work – like blog posts ;-)

    De Sade is fascinating to read – he reminds me of Ayn Rand, in the way that he alternates the “juicy” stuff (like plot and sex) with long-winded explanations of his philosophical ideas, and has relatively shallow characters who are really there only to act as mouthpieces for the author. His sex scenes are also at least as fantastical as the visions of Objectivist utopia ;-P I’ve never read Apollinaire, maybe I should? I got sick of De Sade’s constant ramp up into cannibalism and murder – there’s only so much of that one can read.
