reading for this week (11/9-11/13)

Hi people,

Here’s what I’d like us all to read for class this week, all from Abu-Lughod:

Monday: through ch 5 (the NY chapters)

Wed: ch 7 (LA, 1992)

Fri: Ch 8 (theory/comparison chapters)

For the empirical chapters, get a sense of the narrative (what happened, etc.); but also keep your eyes on how do we explain riots, and how to explain NOT riots. I am still v interested in responses and outcomes of riots – not sure our material gets us there yet…
