Excerpts from a keynote address to the US National Women's Studies Association, by the world-famous scholar of deconstructionism Gayatri Spivak. She takes as her theme the question from her best-known essay: Can the subaltern speak? The related question embedded in the talk is: if she speaks, can she be properly understood, when the listeners superimpose their own context, language, and expectations on the messages of those they see as lowly. Global feminism is unfolding in a context of aggressive financialization of the whole world; to have any balance requires the agents of development learning to listen.
This time on The Children's Hour we get onboard and learn about trains. The Kids Crew went on a field trip to The Wheels Museum of Albuquerque, and discovered the rich history of railroads. Several kids on our Kids Crew went to the WHEELS Museum of Albuquerque to learn more about trains and transportation. Genevieve, Cade, Corbit, Kodiak, Max, Thorfin, and Gareth spoke with WHEELS volunteers about their work, what the museum does, and how trains came to be our main form of transportation of goods in the world. Train technology is much older than we expected. The original tracks were made of wood, and were built in Germany in the 1500's to help horse drawn carriages navigate dirt roads. Those same tracks have become the foundation for express trains today which can go over 200 miles per hour! But the fastest trains in the world are in China, and can go over 260 miles per hour. The United States has not yet invested in high speed rail systems. It's about time, don't you agree? Katie Stone is The Children's Hour Executive Producer, our Senior Producer is Christina Stella. Eli Henley produced our Kids Crew segments recorded at the Wheels Museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Children's Hour is produced at the solar powered Sunspot Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Many thanks to the parents who chaperoned, and Leba at Wheels Museum for the excellent adventure in field recording had by our Kids Crew. 2023 The Children's Hour Inc.
This Week In Palestine - An Electronic Intifada interview with Ghada Karmi on her seminal book, Searching for Fatima
Today we feature a conversation with Palestinian physician, author, journalist, and activist Ghada Karmi. Karmi speaks with the Electronic Intifada’s Nora Barrows Friedman and Asa Winstanley. Her seminal book, Searching for Fatima, is a classic memoir of her own family’s expulsion from their home in Palestine during the Nakba. But first, we take note of yet another insulting slap in the face by Israel supporter Joe Biden. At the recent nationally televised White House Correspondents' Dinner, Biden paid tribute to several foreign journalists who were killed this past year while doing their job, yet did not even mention Shireen Abu Akhleh, US citizen and longtime journalist killed by Israel while on duty, wearing a jacket prominently labeled PRESS. This is another example of the US ignoring Israeli crimes and thereby supporting them.
