Surprise book from the mail. Recently supported the crowdfunding project by Teyit and this was one of the gifts for the support. Arrival of new books always makes me happy.
Teyit is a great fact-checking organization from Turkey and their crowdfunding project was a special series of reporting on anti-vaxxers and other bullshit/conspiracy theories on health. In case you want to check out what else they’re doing, here’s their work in English. They also have an English Twitter account too.
Bottom two, K-Punk and State Machines, are from the early November London trip. K-Punk is one of those books which you’ll read and re-read dozens of times over the years.
Rest came in yesterday. I was only planning to buy Teknopolis, because it seemed interesting but ended up ordering five books. I’m also excited to read Colson Whitehead‘s novels. I’m always a bit cautious about reading translation novels but the publisher is a trusted one.
Recently decided working on to change and add more diverse stuff to my information diet. This also includes thinking about where I’m spending money on and make sure it goes to people and ideas will feed my brain more and actually needs and deserves support.
So I started with mono.kultur and these two arrived yesterday afternoon. From the moment I pulled those out from the envelope it was obvious to me that I made the right decision. Stuff like these makes it clear that people who made it creates things because they care about things or they have something to say and that thing you’re holding is important for them —whether it’s a book, album, zine or a mag.
That feeling is something I look up to and try to create while I’m working. I hope I can achieve that. And I really wish I had more money to support everything which gives me that feeling.
Sanırım Türkçe dergiler arasında en sevdiğim yayın Cogito. Ancak bir süredir takip edemediğim için “Türkiyeli Kadın Felsefeciler” sayısından yeni haberim oldu. Görür görmez de sipariş verdim. Böyle özel bir sayı çıkarttıkları için Cogito ekibine teşekkür ederim.
Sayının linki için sitelerine bakarken son birkaç sayının da tam benlik olduğunu fark etmek açıkcası hiç iyi olmadı. Bu kadar sevdiğim bir dergiyi böyle uzaktan takip etmemem lazım. Sonra böyle birikiyor hepsi bir anda.
