The list below acknowledges the personal and interpersonal conversations that influence my decision-making as a researcher. These are the funding sources of my convictions, my discourses, my episteme, my worldview, etc.
Arranged alphabetically, each topic of interest below is accompanied by a conversational primer as well as those speakers who introduced me to the conversation. Over time, the conversations will grow to accommodate additional subjects and speakers.
The content of this page will naturally evolve as I bring new influences into the OERhizome. Recognizing the limitations of my cultural and discursive gaze (living and working in rural South Carolina does not help), however, I encourage visitors to challenge my associations and recommend other intellectual stimuli in the comments at the bottom of the page.
