Carol Margaret Davison was rude to Greg Johnson.


Her 2004 essay, Haunted House/Haunted Heroine: Female Gothic Closets in “The Yellow Wallpaper”, opens describing Greg’s Gothic allegory reading of  “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, as “a fairly satisfactory general overview”. She goes on to declare that her essay “acts, to some degree, as a ‘corrective’ to Johnson’s essay and to the numerous studies that have read [“The Yellow Wallpaper”] exclusively as a light and nonpolitical horror tale or as a politically charged feminist piece that explores the ideology of femininity(48).” Her tone is dripping with patronizing superiority as she grants him the allowance of not having had access to several ground breaking studies made after his 1989 publication.

i've been avoiding this.


where you were when we began this 360° process, where you are now, and what’s been happening in between. How-and-what have you been learning? Where do you think that the edges of your learning now lie? In what ways has your understanding been expanded, challenged, or complexified in this 360°? Be sure to include reflections on the degree of your critical, active engagement with the portion of the cluster devoted to the creation of our exhibit. 


I hadn't been worried about needing to prove my learning all semester, but last friday when Jody remarked in the campus center that I hadn't done any work, I began to realize how quickly narratives can shift.

Ecological Imaginings

Spring 2015

Self Evaluation


Ecological Imaginings has definitely changed my perspective on classroom dynamics. I was sure, after last semester when I took Critical Feminist Studies, that there was no way to blend the elements of a collaborative classroom with traditional academia without it being at least a little painful. I was wrong. I had an incredible time in this class this semester. The biggest marker for me, was that I was completely engaged with the subject matter at every unit.
