Post a Comment. Sunday, February 20, bell hooks-a place where the soul can rest. Yes, there's all the talk about porches and the connotations with that but I think fundamentally she's dealing with how spaces are formed, why they are formed, who they're for and what we all associate with them.
There's also the notions of belonging coming through and the fact that all of us feel the need for that kind of identification from somewhere. Regardless of what we do, there will be labels given to you. Personally I think its very interesting that we as a people MUST cateogorize everything and once things don't fit into a slot there's often some kind of problem, although we're all encouraged to be ourselves and be individuals.
Another issue she raised was how the invasion of a space can be received. Yes she used racism here and 'automatically' she was right and the white folks were 'automatically' wrong for feeling disgruntled due to her intrusion into their society.
But purely based on the fundamental notion of spatial awareness we all hate to have our own comfort zones disregarded by others we find share different values from us. No comments:. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.

Post a Comment. A Place Where The Soul Can Rest is an interesting piece of literature written by a theorist by the name of bell hooks interesting story behind not using capitals in the first letters of her name.
