Come into the garden...
This picture, by Jian Wei, rather eloquently sums up my life right now - making the most of the sunshine and revising for my exams. I'm currently battling through Freud and Butler for my exam on gender, sexuality and culture on Tuesday. If you've ever fancied dabbling in psychoanalysis or gender theory, simply don't. You'll start noting Freudian symbols around your bedroom and realigning/reassesing your gender. What is gender anyway? And who invented the concept of 'woman'? Isn't it just a patriarchal construct...?
