The challenge of pictures….
[this week the LSUC released the news that Ryerson won the contract to deliver the LPP. The OBA, involved somehow with the Ryerson efforts, announced the arrival of the somewhat controversial program with a picture that…surprised me]

Events you Missed
(you wish you were there): Emma Cunliffe (UBC) at York
- happy on rainy afternoon listening to UBC lawprof Emma Cunliffe (w Deb Parkes ) women & wrongfulconviction http://ifls.osgoode.yorku.ca/2013/11/this-friday-emma-cunliffe-at-slst-series-women-and-wrongful-convictions-learning-from-difference/ …
- Cunliffe speaks of need to broaden the concept of wrongfulconviction beyond factual total innocence & thereby discover new kinds of causes
- Cunliffe & Parkes consider lack of attentn to women in wrongfulconviction lit, looking @ gendered propensity to take responsibility
(you may be relieved to have missed this) I become Highly Irritated at the Munk Debate:“the end of men”
[during the debate]
Rosin wants to help men, as their era of dominance ends. Paglia (con) is concerned abt feminist denigration of men & end of female glamour.
Given this munkdebate is clearly just an intellectual jello wrestle, seems churlish to point to lack of intersectional analysis excpt class
Here @munkdebate class analysis=way to hide, not reveal, plutocrat driven rising inequality. Oh wait! Here we go It isnt gender but class.
1 i like Caitlin Moran best = proof of problem 2 Toronto room, primed on Ford, v sympathetic to poor working class men.
Now Naomi Wolf is here via tape talking about …oh, anyway. Now: but patriarchy is alive & well in (name country white ppl dont live)
Rosin is, to be fair, taking that on. It was Rudyard Griffith (moderator) who made the claim
Now is the part where we reassure the men that this is all about how we love then. bechdelfail
