THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: IN 1994, IN THE ALBANY BORDERS BOOKSTORE, I FOUND AND PURCHASED A FASCINATING BOOK THAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT

THE TRUE AND AUTHENTIC AND REAL POSTCOLONIALISTS I STUDIED AND WROTE ABOUT AT DRAKE UNIVERSITY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN

THE TRUE AND AUTHENTIC AND REAL POSTCOLONIALISTS I STUDIED AND WROTE ABOUT AT DRAKE UNIVERSITY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN, BEFORE ARRIVING AT THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT.  THE TRUE AND AUTHENTIC AND REAL POSTCOLONIALISTS ARE WRITERS AND THEORISTS SUCH AS DR. EDWARD SAID, DR. GAYATRI SPIVAK, DR. TRINH MINH-HA AND DR. HOMI BHABHA AND MANY OTHERS THAT I STUDIED, WHOSE WORK IS BASED UPON ETHNOGRAPHIC INSIGHTS, METHODS AND FRAMEWORKS AND WHO WRITE IN ETHNOGRAPHIC, POETIC PROSE ABOUT "OTHERING" AND MARGINALIZATION DURING AND AFTER COLONIALISM.  THE SO-CALLED AND WEAK AND CONVOLUTED TRANSNATIONALISTS WHO BEGAN COLONIZING THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENTS AND OTHER ENGLISH DEPARTMENTS IN THE LATE 1990's AND EARLY 2000's, DO NOT TEACH NOR UNDERSTAND THE REAL POSTCOLONIALISM AND THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS" ARE ACTUALLY PRO-COLONIALISM AND THE DESCENDENTS OF THE OPPRESSORS WHO SPONSORED COLONIALISM.   THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS" HAVE LUXURIOUS LIFES COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS TO THE NEEDS OF THE OPPRESSED AND MARGINALIZED AND THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS"' HAVE EXCESSIVE WEALTH AND SO-CALLED AND PSEUDO-PRESTIGE (THAT THEY BESTOW UPON THEMSELVES) THAT ALLOWS THEM TO CROSS INTERNATIONAL BORDERS VERY EASILY UNLIKE THE IMPOVERISHED REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS FROM DEVELOPING AND POOR COUNTRIES WHO SEEK RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.      AT UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN I STUDIED THE EXTENSIVE HISTORY OF CULTURAL STUDIES UNDER DR. LAWRENCE GROSSBERG, AND THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS" ARE ACTUALLY VEHEMENTLY AGAINST ETHNOGRAPHY AND POETICS AND THE TRUE CULTURAL STUDIES BECAUSE IT CHALLENGES AND DECONSTRUCTS THEIR PSEUDO-POWER AND PSEUDO-SELF-GRANTED-AUTHORITY AS COLONIZERS OF UNIVERSITIES AND AS OPPRESSORS OF STUDENTS AND GRADUATE STUDENTS, AND THAT IS WHY, DURING THE LATE 1990's and the EARLY 2020's THESE INARTICULATE AND INTELLECTUALLY-ILLITERATE, BANKRUPT  AND CONVOLUTED "TRANSNATIONALISTS" BEGAN TARGETING PROGRAMS SUCH AS SUNY ALBANY'S PROGRAM IN WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM AND DELIBERATELY INFILTRATING AND COLONIZING THESE PROGRAMS AS NEW FACULTY WHICH THEY BULLIED THEIR WAYS INTO AND BY CLAIMING TO UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATORS THAT THEY WOULD BRING A PSEUDO-PRESTIGE TO THE PROGRAM WHICH WAS TOTAL GARBAGE BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ANYWHERE NEAR THE STATURE AND AUTHENTICITY OF REAL CULTURAL STUDIES/JUSTICE FIGURES AND RESEARCHERS SUCH AS DR. LAWRENCE GROSSBERG  AND DR. ANDREW ROSS OF NEW YORK UNIVERSITY, NYC,  AND DR. KATHLEEN STEWART AND DR. CLIFFORD GEERTZ AND DR. JAMES CLIFFORD AND  DR. PATRICIA CLOUGH AND DR. LINDA BRODKEY AND MANY OTHERS  IN THE FIELD OF CULTURAL STUDIES/JUSTICE AND WHOSE WORK AND WRITINGS I HAVE STUDIED, IMMENSELY-VALUED AND WRITTEN ABOUT SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE AND THROUGHOUT GRADUATE SCHOOL AND  TAUGHT EXTENSIVELY IN THE CLASSROOM AS A PROFESSOR MYSELF SINCE TEACHING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN AND ON THROUGH MY TEACHING AT GEORGIA TECH IN ATLANTA.   THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS" ARE ACTUALLY VEHEMENTLY AGAINST AND OPPOSED TO THE CULTURAL JUSTICE AND MARGINALIZATION AND "OTHERING" ISSUES RAISED IN THE WRITINGS AND THE TEACHINGS OF THESE CULTURAL STUDIES FIGURES AND THEORISTS THAT I JUST MENTIONED AND THEY DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND CULTURAL STUDIES IN THE FIRST PLACE AND JUST THROW INARTICULATE WORDS AROUND ON THE PAGE AND DELIBERATELY MISAPPROPRIATE AND WATER-DOWN AND INCOHERENTLY-MISREPRESENT THEORISTS SUCH FOUCAULT AND DERRIDA AND I MYSELF, DR. DIANE K. OLSON,  HAVE READ, STUDIED, DEEPLY-EXPORED AND DEEPLY-UNDERSTOOD THE IMPLICATIONS OF FOUCAULT AND DERRIDA FOR AMERICAN CULTURE AND FOR  THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION STUDIES AND I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT EVERY LAST BOOK AND ARTICLE EVER WRITTEN BY AND INTERVIEW GIVEN BY MICHEL FOUCAULT SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE AND I ALSO WROTE ONE OF MY EXAM PAPERS FOR MY PHD ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMPOSITIONS STUDIES AND MICHEL FOUCAULT'S WRITINGS AND THERE ARE MANY OTHER COMPOSITIONISTS SUCH AS DR. KURT SPELLMEYER AND DR. ELLEN QUANDAHL WHO HIGHLY VALUE AND WRITE ABOUT THE ETHNOGRAPHIC AND PSYCHOANALYTIC INSIGHTS OF DR. MICHEL FOUCAULT AND THE IMPLICATIONS OF THOSE INSIGHTS FOR THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION STUDIES AND FOR RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF COMPOSITION STUDIES.   I HAVE MUCH, MUCH MORE TO SAY AND WRITE ON THESE ISSUES AND THE FRAUDITY OF "TRANSNATIONALISM" AND ITS' ELITIST CLAIMS TO POWER AND IT'S AWFUL OPPRESSION OF STUDENTS IN THE CLASSROOM AND IT'S ANTI-ETHNOGRAPHIC AND ANTI-POETIC AND ANTI-PROSE AND ANTI-JUSTICE STANCES -- FOLKS, THEY HAVE DONE AWAY WITH ALL OF THE POETICS AND PROSE CLASSES IN THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT, WHICH MAKES  GOD ALMIGHTY VERY AND RIGHTEOUSLY UPSET BECAUSE GOD HERSELF/HIMSELF IS A POET AND PROSE-WRITER -- HE/SHE IS A CREATOR -- OUR CREATOR -- AND DESIGNER AND ARTIST, AFTER ALL.  THAT IS THE END OF MY LECTURE/SERMON FOR TODAY, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st, 2020, MUCH, MUCH MORE TO COME WHEN I AM FEELING BETTER. SINCERELY AND RIGHTEOUSLY, DR. DIANE K. OLSON
