A quick note on mission statements
Regular readers will notice that the tagline for this site has changed.
I started this blog with a pretty specific vision. (See my inaugural post on what I dub quotidianism.) While “the embodied everyday” was a very theoretically apropos description of those concerns, it started to seem a tad … purposeless, as the site began to take on a life of its own, quite distinct from any pre-determined frameworks I’d dreamed up for it. (My revisitation of the topic here.)
So anyways, I figured a slight tweaking was in order. As a statement, “articulations” is simultaneously broad and brief enough to suggest both thematic scope and critical concision, an elastic conjuncture of those centrifugal, often contradictory positions …
Of course there’s the rather cheesy pun – art-iculations indeed – but feel free to pretend that’s not there.
