Academe: 3 Notes

Notes:

– The library at Penn files Foucault’s ‘Archaeology of Knowledge’ in the Archeology section.

– 2 books came in the mail. One was Donald Barthelme’s biography and one was a collection of his essays. One of the back covers says he died at age 54. The other says 58. For once, the truth is nicer than the fiction, though 58 is still far too young.

– Still on the topic of Barthelmes, Donald’s brother, Frederick, is in a feud with his former university. The upshot of the feud is that FB is starting his own online magazine. It is called Rick Magazine. This means that when we practice constructing analogies for our GREs, we can now say that Frederick Barthelme is to the Mississippi Review as Emily Gould is to Gawker.
