i’m very happy to be participating in “the housing question: nomad seminar in historiography” next march 12-13, 2005 at the university of san diego! the roster is great, with good friends and colleagues, and let’s face it: boston is buried under several feet of snow right now, so san diego sounds wonderful. here’s an abstract of my paper, which deals with the same film as the paper i presented at caa, here with more emphasis on the discourse of housing. i have to admit i love my paper’s title and i love this image, which is a still from the film and wonderfully creepy and evocative at the same time. also in the paper, fake psychoanalysts! surrealist photomontage! peronist propaganda! and all sorts of great material–i hope i’m doing it justice.
