Liberal Arts In The News
Modern life is crazy stressful. It often feels like you’re trapped inside a 24-hour barrage of bad news, political hijinks and social media-induced envy. There may be no way to fix the world outside your front door, but the world inside can be a haven of your own creation. Here’s how.
This August, Atlanta-born, Brooklyn-based author Tayari Jones arrived in Las Vegas. She’s here as a Black Mountain Institute Shearing Fellow, which means she’s spending the academic year working on her next book. Right now, Jones is on a six-week, 35-event book tour. She spoke with Las Vegas Weekly from her stop in Boston. She returns to UNLV in March.
On Jan. 27, the state of Washington gave adults a third sex option on birth certificates — an “X” to indicate neither male nor female — without medical documentation. As gender scholars, we applaud this. It’s a big deal for the state to say that we don’t simply have males and females. Just adding one more category is a good start but doesn’t solve the problem of how we use these categories.
*Life is about to change for author Tayari Jones.
A novel written in the English language with a name like An American Marriage conjures up a specific set of broad outlines: post-war optimism, masturbation in the suburbs, the disappointment of life, familial breakdown, that sort of thing. “White people in Connecticut getting a divorce,” author Tayari Jones supplies dryly, from the fringe of a migraine, when I begin to ask her about the title of her newest novel. It was a yoke she was keen to sidestep, even though she was the one who suggested it in the first place.
