The black sheep of Exley Science Center has a new t-shirt logo, and its vaguely uterine appearance has once and for all marked Pi Cafe as the depraved den of iniquity we all suspected it was. While the abstract illustration supports multiple interpretations, only a fool could miss the undeniably sapphic message conveyed by its devious design. “Purity?” “Flavor??” Surely these presumptuous claims are the work of Satan, as all women other than the blessed virgin and my mom are born in sin. Which brings us once again to the question plaguing our generation: what are they teaching our kids in these schools? Will the Academy’s liberal mystifications never cease??
Befuddled patrons of the cafe weigh in after the jump. Only time will tell whether Pi’s insidious efforts to convert Middletown’s youth to its misandrist agenda will prove successful.
Wesleyan’s favorite Mexican philosopher-prince is at it again. Gustavo Esteva closes up his lecture series tomorrow with a final event.
Ross Levin ’15 writes in:
The Foucaultian challenge to the institutional production of “truth” (the statements governing our behavior) is not coming from universities or research centers but from social movements: insurgent research, militant research, reflection in action. From Colectivo Situaciones in Argentina to Unitierra in California or Chocosol in Toronto autonomous centers for the production of knowledge are proliferating. Is this an ephemeral, marginal fashion? What is the role of these centers in the current wave of mobilizations? Does they represent alternative, valid ways of knowing?
