who you see are
what you hear are
echoes from those of the past
who came here and suffered
who departed without speaking their truths
voices from those of the now
who will not be chastened into silence
who refuse to submit to tyranny of
authoritarians drunk with power
who have yet to see view or treat us as equals
who would make us disappear if left unchecked

Here’s an idea for Holiday shopping–give your loved one a copy of my book!
Edwin Mellen Press, the publisher of my book How Three Black Women Writers Combined Spiritual and Sensual Love: Rhetorically Transcending the Boundaries of Love is now offering my book in soft-cover for half the price: $43.29 USD. It’s a heck of a bargain considering the fact that the hardcover is $119 USD. So how do you get it? Well, until Mellen Press starts offering it online at Amazon or on their site, you have to call and ask, though I’m betting if enough people ask, they’ll relent and get on board with market demand much faster. Meanwhile, here’s the contact name and phone number:
Ms. Irene Miller
Be sure to let her know you found out the good news about getting my book soft-cover from me, Dr. Cherie Ann Turpin.
Meanwhile, here’s the publisher site (academics do get small discounts for the hardcover):

The Age of Magic.
During one of my morning surfing ventures through the web theGrio.com led me to Dr. Shaw’s blog post about “magic,” or more accurately, perceptions of the world and technological advances. It has occurred to me that someone dumped into 2012 from 1812 or even 1912 via a time machine (and we’re working on that one-trust me!) would think we were all sorcerers who sold our souls to the Devil himself for having these contraptions with sound and sight. Musical instruments with buttons instead of strings (iPods/iPads?). Metal books without paper yet able to hold thousands and thousands of pages you find just by pressing more buttons. Read more and tell me what you think you would do if you were plopped into the 24th or 28th century of our planet. First of all, would anything be left? We seem to enjoy burning out our planet’s ability to sustain itself, lately.

Open Objects: Both technologist and humanist in the academic digital humanities?. A very good post on the status of digital humanities as a field of inquiry in its own right, particularly in Britain.
