Saturday Link Love: Power, H Mart, and Food

Saturday Link Love: Power, H Mart, and Food August 25, 2018

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

On Power and Aporia in the Academy: A Response in Three Parts, on Medium—“Over this past week I have been thinking almost incessantly about scholarship, feminism, and power. Four days ago I awoke to a Facebook post about the case of Avital Ronell at NYU.”

The Kill Line, on Southern Poverty Law Center—“Should prisons be in business with one of the most dangerous industries in America?”

Crying in H Mart, on The New Yorker—“For those of you who don’t know, H Mart is a supermarket chain that specializes in Asian food. … H Mart is where parachute kids go to get the exact brand of instant noodles that reminds them of home.”

What We Lost: White Supremacy, Immigration, and Food, on Samantha P. Field—“I don’t often read the ‘How Millennials Killed _____’ articles until they hit tumblr and have been properly eviscerated first, but this one was about food … so I clicked it.”

My Great-Granfather, the Nigerian Slave Trader, on The New Yorker—“Long before Europeans arrived, Igbos enslaved other Igbos as punishment for crimes, for the payment of debts, and as prisoners of war.”
