Just reading (listening) to this.
I have legal blindness now and sometimes profound blindness.
Need I say that 'acquiring' blindness is scary?!
And so I work through 'alternate' ways of seeing and knowing
and would be interested in making a proposal for a talking circle
that addresses the bridges I've been describing as
governed by "Faux Amis" and "Cross-Linguistics" ...
I would be able to attend only if there is funding for
fare and accommodation and methinks this does not exist.
But if I am wrong, do let me hear.
My speed of editing my own work now has changed from
reading at 600wpm by sight reading to about 100wpm
by listening (aurally) ....
The main area of importance with this is the meaning
of "literacy" at the cross-roads of autochthonous
and mestizaje origins, the loss of 'true' manhood
amongst boys and men who become bilingualized by schooling
and the girls and women who begin to believe (due to
many social constructionisms) that they really
are "little men" ... and other mythologies of self
that have invaded "english" and other foreign language
learning ostensibly as if they were various literacies.
I cannot use the online portal, if that is requested.
But as my laptop was recently stolen I'm writing now
without reading technology.
Until tomorrow when I'll give reading another go.
