And what are my thoughts exactly?

Image removed. That Tomkins is on to something.

That you probably think it's Gaga standing next to Alexander McQueen in the picture above when really it isBjork.

That it's sad when these things happen.

That Damien Hirst might just suspect that celebrity is a death mask. Image removed.

My Colloquies are shareables: Curate personal collections of blog posts, book chapters, videos, and journal articles and share them with colleagues, students, and friends.

My Colloquies are open-ended: Develop a Colloquy into a course reader, use a Colloquy as a research guide, or invite participants to join you in a conversation around a Colloquy topic.

My Colloquies are evolving: Once you have created a Colloquy, you can continue adding to it as you browse Arcade.
