📚 Bibliographies: 000 – A Quick Introduction
In which I reveal that I read too much
It might be obvious to you, but in case it isn’t – I read a lot. Not just because I want to, but sometimes (often), because I have to.
There’s reading for work, typically 1) to stay up to date on specific industries and 2) to find out more about a particular topic I’m writing about. And then there’s reading for fun – mostly fiction, but usually in line with my work / research interests.
But what Bibliographies will be mainly concerned with is the reading I do for my academic research. This includes news and feature articles, journal articles, theses, books and book chapters, and more.
Lots of the things I come across for research are so fascinating and I am lowkey sad that I don’t always have the opportunity to highlight them in the main section of The Sex Beat.
this journal article comparing metaphor use on mom blogs written by evangelical Christians and Latter Day Saints
this newsletter issue about how a Mormon “second generation influencer” talks about sex on her public channels
the fifth chapter from Rosalind Galt’s amazing book Alluring Monsters, in which she explores a “pontianak theory of the forest”
I’m not sure what systems or formats – or if there will even be a format – for the issues in this section. So let’s see how this goes.
If you’re reading, thank you. And do let me know if there’s any way I can do better.
