Banned Books Week is wrapping up at BVC, with some posts on sensitive topics:
- The “N” Word
- Not Even Mein Kampf: Why Hateful Books Should Not Be Banned
- “The First Thing a Principle Does Is Kill Somebody”
- We Only Read One Book in Our House
- Censoring Comics
- A Banned Comic and the Guy Who Bought It
And, this being Friday and two weeks since my last post there, I’m back with something completely unrelated to Banned Books Week: “A Good Saxon Compound,” talking about the origin of the word “folklore” and the field’s concern with nationalism and identity. Comment over there!
