About Voices from the Margins

This is a place for important creative and critical works that question the status quo. Academic journals and media tend to serve as gatekeepers, enforcing standards that limit works to those that reflect “the ways things have always been done,” thereby screening out creative works (prose, poetry, art and pieces that interweave different media). The intention for creating this blog is to encourage dialogue about possibilities and support for alternate ways of communicating that celebrate the inclusiveness of diversity.

    Dear Carol,

    I’m posting here (delete this post if it’s not the place, please!) the link to a project I started thinking of you! 🙂 I mention it on “Herstory”.

    http://www.talkingpeople.net/learnspanish/

    I’m not sure it will help you or anyone to learn Spanish, because I’m doing just what I feel like and using rudimentary tools, like vocaroo and no editing of the audios!, because I’m so full of work all the time and I need to do it all very fast. But when I do it, it’s kind of taking a break from obligations! It’s fun!

    Feel free to give me any feedback that can help me improve, if you find the time to use it, of course! Don’t feel obliged! I’m entertained! 😀

    A sister hug from Spain!

      Dear Michelle, It’s always a pleasure to hear from you, no matter where you choose to post! I was just thinking of you this morning, wondering how you were doing, and feeling a little guilty for not listening to the audios you have already sent. But I did realize it is something I want to do 🙂 and I will make time. (I follow several bloggers in Spain, so I do have a reason to spend time learning.)

      I will give you feedback soon on the audio resources. (Did I ever tell you I tried to learn Spanish by myself when I first started reading? Obviously, it didn’t work.)

      I also need to tell you that your posts to your students make me laugh — you’re so much better at holding them accountable that am I — and in a gentle, funny way! And a big hug to you, dear sister!

    😀 😀 😀 (Blushed face!) 😀 I’m so glad to know! Thanks! ❤
    I do have a very strong character, and certain topics make me rant and rave!!! But it's true — how could you get it so well! — I never want to hurt, just explain, and humor is such a resource! 😀

  8. Hello, Carol,
    First of all, thank you for following my blog, writewireless. I finally stumbled on your blog after many months, and I want you to know that I feel honored that you have chosen to follow mine! I loved your essay “Worlds Apart” on cultural competence and native peoples, and I went on to read a few other posts.You are an amazing teacher in every sense of the word, and your very articulate writing is infused with soul and deep wisdom. Know that the work you are doing through your blog is not, as the blog title might indicate, “marginal” at all–it affects people’s consciousness in a very profound way. Please keep it up!

  26. Hi Carol. Thanks so much for featuring my post “A Few Seconds” in your Interesting Posts sidebar. I also have some recent posts up on the Supreme Court’s decision for Marriage Equality and the mass shooting in Charleston, S.C. that you might be interested in. I am so glad you are blogging; there are not a lot of blogs out there featuring creative social protest and thoughtful ways that we might be able to improve others’ lives.
