Dancing with the Zapatistas is a collection of scholarly and artistic responses to the continuing work and lives of the Zapatistas twenty years after their emergence from the Lacondon Jungle. The digital book illustrates the many ways the Zapatistas have inspired other movements and artistic responses. Written by scholars, artists, journalists, activists and graduate students, each response is informed and enriched by the others yet also comprehensible in its own right.
Besides co-editing the book, I also contributed a photo-essay of the murals of Oventik.
A bad week of migraines. I recently joined the Chronic Migraine Awareness Facebook Page, which I find painful to read so don’t visit often. I glanced at it today and saw several posts about the inability to read. My decrease in reading books is a fact that I have had a hard time admitting to. Only in the last year have I realized that it is due to my migraines. I left the Facebook quickly but am posting this admission.
