Last Resorts

I compiled the sites that I thought you should ABSOLUTELY know about in preparation for your final paper. And even among these, if anything has a triple star to its left, consider it a proleptically rewarded duty to visit those sites as part of the studying/research you’re doing now. And Bookmark them too please. You’ll see what I mean. Earl.

The Voice of the Shuttle

The Voice of the Shuttle is the justly renowned megasite woven by Professor Alan Liu at the University of California, Santa Barbara. If you’ve never visited it, I would only be wasting time to time to describe the immensity, the richness, and the invaluable opportunities Professor Liu places at your fingertips. And this would be time you could be pointing your browser at the Shuttle’s opulent warp and woofs and beginning your new life!

      Don’t pay attention to how the title of this web site sounds. It is one of the most complete, erudite, informative, and economically sound info and definiton checkpoints running. And it’s not just about art. You can get definitons of terms from Lacanian psychoanalysis, all flavors of Marxism, deconstruction, poststructuralism, linguistics. It’s a major helper and please use it.
