Lot’s of good reading this Memorial Day weekend (I’m in Canada but I can still celebrate by ignoring emails and simply take a few days for nothing but reading).

A funny piece in Slate: Fake universities and diploma programs: A story in stock photos..
An interesting discussion of Latour’s Gaia discussions: No Borders Metaphysics: Gaia, human-earthbound war and animism as deconstructors of the political theology of the moderns.
Looks to be a good collection to get on Foucault and the biopolitical: The Government of Life: Foucault, Biopolitics, and Neoliberalism // Reviews // Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews // University of Notre Dame.
By Joy James at Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews. A quite positive review.
