Guest Post: Regulating Mobile Dating Apps
This guest post is by Chris Grisdale  Twitter:  @Cgrisdale Instagram: chrisgrisdale From a certain point of view, mobile dating applications are a kind of trading floor—exchanges where personal profiles, not companies, are listed. And while Stock Exchanges ...

What Is Femininity, Anyway?
Back in July, Laura Jane Grace was the guest on Marc Maron's WTF podcast, and one of the things she talked about was her "experiences as a trans woman in a punk rock world." I'd never heard of Laura Jane Grace and I don't know much of anything about her mus...

What Do People Think About All Day?
This question isn't a joke and I don't mean it metaphorically or as an indirect way of implying something else. I mean it literally. What do people think about? 
A couple of months ago, I was diagnosed with a cracked tooth just before I was going to travel ...

Economic Concepts And Normative Entanglement
Don't you think it's kind of weird from the economic point of view "exercise more" could be a preferred weight loss strategy to "eat less"? I feel like economics should have nothing to say on the subject. And in one sense, I'd say economics agrees with me: ...

The Dream Of The Fundamental Law Of Human Behavior: WTF?
One of the trends in modern thinking that really mystifies and annoys me is the dream of the simple fundamental law of human behavior. What is up with that? In fact I'm mystified and annoyed both by the credulity -- the belief that there is a simple fundame...

The Château Rouge Experience: I'm An Outsider Here But It Feels Like Home
Château Rouge. I took this last winter but you get the idea. I've been in Paris for two weeks, and lately when I come to Paris I always stay in the same place, and this place just happens to be in a neighborhood called Château Rouge. It's an area with a lot...
I've been in Paris for two weeks, and lately when I come to Paris I always stay in the same place, and this place just happens to be in a neighborhood called Château Rouge. It's an area with a lot of people who come from, or have roots in, Francophone Africa, and there are lots of shops with ...

Grexit "Plan B" And Our Dreams Of A Frictionless World
Like so many people I was fascinated by the whole "Plan B for Grexit" idea. Did you follow this? The former finance minister Varoufakis and some pals had this idea for what to do in case Greece suddenly became expunged from the Eurozone. As has been noted ,...

La Dolce Vita Bella Donna, Or, The Problem Of Narrative Female Promiscuity
A week ago I went to see La Dolce Vita at the Bell Lightbox . I'm a huge Fellini fan and I can't get enough of Marcello Mastroianni so of course I loved it and thought it was brilliant. Among the themes of the movie is our modern celebrity-obsessed, reality...

Do Universities Need Departments Of What The Hell Is Going On?
I assign pretty contemporary stuff in class, so I was surprised and amused recently when my students recently started complaining that the texts I was assigning were too old -- so old, in fact, that they were having trouble reading them at all. "We can't re...

What Happened In The 80s, Anyway?
From the 1970s. The other day a friend of mine mentioned they had something to show me: it was an economics text, they said, from the 70s, and it presented as obvious things like "economics is a moral science" -- meaning, I take it, that economics is inhere...

The Hegemony Of Improvement Culture, Or, Why Can't I Just Enjoy BodyAttack?
BodyAttack: doesn't it look like fun? There this group exercise class I love called BodyAttack. If you told me when I was a kid that some day I would grow up to enjoy a sports-inspired work-out class with athletic moves like sit-ups and squats I would defin...

Though I am, overall, a much happier person than I was when I was young, as an adult I've experienced a a lot of what I like to think of as melancholia. By melancholia I mean some mix of sadness, low life force, discouragement, and a feeling of "Oh, whatever, what's the point." ...
