Reading List

Below are all the books, documents, or articles that I’ve referenced in blog posts. This page serves as both a more formal sources page as well as a comprehensive list of the the works that influence my thinking around the project. Pulled from anthropology, poetry, journalism, and other disciplines, I hope these works encourage cross-disciplinary exploration.

Format: MLA citations headed by the post in which the source appears, linked. Listed in order of appearance in posts, posts listed chronologically.
