Summer Scrapbook

May 29, 2008 at 10:09 pm 2 comments

One of my goals for the sabbatical is to get a little more tech savvy including photo savvy.  I thought a fun way to do that might be to periodically share a “scrapbook” as I get photos loaded up onto the computer (which means I have to learn how to scan! and crop! and… who knows what else). 

So, here is scrapbook #1– images from some of my favorite summer experiences.  




The locations of the above adventures?  Trinidad, Brazil, Maine, Oregon, Germany and California.  Feel free to match picture with place.  Now, what have been some of your favorite summer experiences?  And if you’re a blogger, let me know if you put a summer scrapbook on your site– I’d love to check it out.

    A summer scrapbook is a great idea for a blog post, Rosie. These photos are gorgeous. :)

    PS I saw Hijas Americanas (finally) on the new books shelf at my library and read your handwritten dedication. Thank you so much for doing that!

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
