I’ve been following the current protests in Nigeria against SARS. I think it would be very helpful for those who want to get informed and to help if they can. Here’s an article on three ways, you can donate/help.




In honor of the Met Museum’s 150th anniversary, they’ve released a new fashion exhibition tracing the changes in fashion from the late 19th century to now. Arranged in pairs around a clock are the origins of a style and contemporary counterpart. It is on display until February 7th.




I’m in the middle of reading through an article called Decolonization Is Not A Metaphor for my GDES practicum and it’s very good so far! I’ve seen the word thrown around a lot in the context of “reform” and “change” and how it goes against the words definition (something I’m guilty of). This article talks about the radical meaning of decolonization in relation to indigenous/settler history. I’m usually not a fan of scholarly articles because of the way in which they are written (I find academic language very hard to read and inaccessible) but I think this is a very easy article to read through.
