Obsessions

06/29/2014

 
Watching the World Cup 2014. I am not a fan of soccer year round, but there is something about a global sporting event that draws my interest. So far, my soccer player obsession is the Brazilian #10 Neymar. For better (his charm) or for worse (his hair), Neymar is charming and annoying me all at once.

 

Medieval POC

06/13/2014

 
Currently in love with this website: Medieval POC , or People of Color in Medieval European Art History: http://medievalpoc.org/. There is also a Tumblr blog of the same name.

The site is important, because it challenges the "whitewashing" of history, the the exclusion of non-whites from Epic fantasy, or the "slave" portrayal so frequently pushed when they are included (see Game of Thrones). And, as the website quips--"because you don't want to be historically inaccurate."

Whenever someone questions why there's a black guy leading the king's army in Maleficent, or why Lancelot is black, etc, just point them to the website.
