Essays & Other Notes
The purpose of this page is to share relatively brief essays and other notes with users of this website. I spend a good deal of time working on the Glossary of Orientalism, which has been an important learning opportunity for me. What I want to do here is to share some of the things I am learning with users with the hope that some of my insights might be of use to others who are interested in the study of the notion of Orientalism—to the end that our world might be even slightly more just than it is today.
