ASLE 6: my 2011 bibliography

Last time I attended ASLE I documented the most interesting (to me) books, articles and films that were discussed or even mentioned in various sessions I attended, so I thought I’d take a stab at it again this year to see what it reveals about the preoccupations of those presenters I followed, and my own wandering attentions. The list is much shorter for some reason; could be the sessions I attended or the paucity of my notes.

  1. Either the ASLE conference is right up my alley, or you are. This list takes me back to some very influential forces in my life, and reminds me that I’m not reading enough at the moment.

    Yes, I know what you mean: there’s a risk I’ll feel my work is done by just posting the list. So much to follow up on; so little time!
