Following a meeting and some negotiations by email, Kevin and I have finalized my 20th Century American qualifying exam reading list. He suggested that we break the list into two segments: Canonical and Non-Canonical. This division, for lack of a better terminology, gets the point across about the broad acceptance of these texts in the academy. Nevertheless, all of the works fit into my over all research interests: identity, bodies, and technology. I have posted the leaner, more focused, and more encompassing list on the PhD Exam page.
