Week of July 29 - August 5th: Post-Colonialism


Post-colonialism. Because yes, you really need to read about exoticizing the Other during baby's nap-time. Sarah writes about the loss of archival heritage in Canada, and how it fits into the colonial mindset; Svea opines on the crappy ways Westerners take photographs of 'exotic' people.

And this week features a picture of... a white woman crouched down in front of the fire with a baby strapped to her back in an exotic piece of cloth, from a 1990s sporting goods advertisement in Too Hot For Stroller.
