Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast - Episode 49a - On the Shelf for August 2020 - Transcript

(Originally aired 2020/08/01 - listen here)

Welcome to On the Shelf for August 2020.

I'm always delighted to get my eyeballs on material from outside western Europe and Anglophone cultures. This article is particularly interesting for letting us into the everyday details of language and domestic arrangements around female couples.

Strange and terrifying as it may seem, that enormous bolus of journal articles I downloaded and had all written up in advance is almost at an end. I guess that means I need to find my reading brain again. This book was not a good candidate for finding my brain again.
