Travel Books

With my travel time today (and tomorrow) approaching 35 hours (including a flight listed on the ticket as 21 hrs), I am traveling with books, but nothing too heavy.

V.S. Naipaul, The Enigma of Arrival.
C. Bukowski, Hollywood.
C. Bukowski, Women.

Over the holidays, two books for my work on a Postcolonial approach to Early Christian Architecture in Greece:

D. Chakrabarty, Provincializing Europe: PostColonial Thought and Historical Difference.
G.C. Spivak, A Critique of Postcolonial Reason: Toward a History of the Vanishing Present.

And two books for my Graduate Historiography course next fall (in which I am adding a week on Freud.  The absence of Freud in the original version of the class rendered our discussions of 20th century historiographic developments somewhat unstable):

P. Gay, Freud for Historians.
J. Neu, ed., The Cambridge Companion to Freud.

Thanks to all the people who have read and commented on my work on Blogging Archaeology/Archaeology of Blogging (part1, part 2, part 3).  My plan is to send off a version before the end of the holidays, so if you haven’t commented yet and want to, you have plenty of time.

    Somewhere in your three-part piece on the archaeology of blogging, you might want to mention Cliopatria’s History Blogroll, http://hnn.us/blogs/entries/9665.html .
