Erika Staiti will discuss her recent editorial/archival project, "RACE and GENDER". RACE is an archive of what remains from the conversation surrounding Michael Magee's poem "Their Guys, Their Asian Glittering Guys, Are Gay" (May-Dec 2006). GENDER is an archive relating to the Chicago Review essay "Numbers Trouble" by Juliana Sphar and Stephanie Young (Nov 07-Feb 08). Both projects are exclusively composed of blog posts and comments. RACE and GENDER can be found at http://www.saidwhatwesaid.com/.
