Hi Pat, Tanya, Graham and Tosh and anyone else that responded to Doug's
I was noticing after I rushed in with my two bits, how different Tanya's
orientation to this question was in terms of disciplinarity and privileging
of the topic,
is it gay and lesbian identity AND Rhetoric,
Rhetoric AND .....
Gay and Lesbian AND Media
Identity Formation AND .....
interesting stuff, as the responses continue to demonstrate how we are
written onto the genres and texts that we read and write
Michel and Mikhail were right!!
"We live with strangers. those we love most, with whom we share a shelter,
a table, a bed, remain mysterious. Wherever lives overlap and flow
together, there are depths of unknowing." Mary Catherine Bateson, 2000,
