This is a short video showing Papers Citation software automatically formatting the references for a book chapter in real time. Prior to this I chose the citation style (in this case APA) and that’s it. I don’t really understand why academics and students don’t take a little bit of time to learn how to use citation software.


refuses to disappear

For the body cannot be easily contained by the consumption imperative. It discovers its own sexual and political being and overflows autonomously in many other directions as well. Or, as in the case of the state policies of economic and cultural austerity that have increasingly been imposed upon a recalcitrant underlying population, the body refuses to disappear as a subject.

extend their experience

But it is the job of anybody who wishes to continue to write, particularly for the theatre, to extend their experience, not only to observe but essentially to live through as great a variety of experience as they can lay claim to, to explore this experience in depth as well as in breadth, and to find out, if possible at first hand, what is going on in the world at large, and how their society operates in particular.
