“We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.”
- Alan W. Watts
Encouraging Critical ThoughtSince the blog's conception, in 2011, its posed as many things - a reviewer of culture, a zine, an alternative news source, journal, etc. Though, in the end what it seems to serve best as is a personal archive documenting an intellectual journey and academic interests. The the one constant always being the blog's aim to offer a critical perspective on culture and to encourage intellectual debate.
With that in mind, the blog's newest incarnation is to share with its viewership content collated from research expeditions. Offering a mixture of primary and secondary source material in the form of interviews, media documents (image, sound, film), essays, reviews and critiques relating to research enquiries into the Black Britain, Black studies and Black visual arts.
