Part II. Thread. Medieval White Rage & the Alt-Medieval. #MedievalTwitter #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #LitPOC I reference Carol Anderson's work b/c she points to how far white grievance will go into violent white rage during Jim Crow & school desegregation. What will white ppl do 27/
if their white privilege & place in their world is seen as "threatened" by BIPOC ppl. They will push back but they also will go to white rage violence to stop it & the change for equity & justice. Medieval Studies has an entire alt-medieval group entirely based on white rage 28/
This next example shows how white "leftists" become radicalized into the far-right universe. Tom McMaster, a.k.a. Gay Girl in Damascus. "Amina" was seen by online activists as queer Islamic feminist activist. Of course it was a racist catfish 29/…

#MedievalTwitter #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #Bigger6 #BiPOC18 #VicPOC #POC19 #LitPOC Medieval White Rage. This is literally a condensed version of a chapter in my book Alt-Medieval. A book by the way that I am slowing revising b/c (since it's Mental Health Awareness Month) of PTSD 1/
I have an excellent therapist, but it's still trauma work. I discuss this in this podcast which dropped this month. So this entire alt-medieval group have their own medieval, white supremacist 4chan space called Medieval Studies: State of the Field. 2/…
Paul Halsall started it b/c he couldn't stop himself from saying racist things @ me & other BIPOC medievalists in medieval FB groups. He got kicked out. The group includes Rachel Fulton Brown. Academic medievalists have been talking & liking her comments there for years. 3/

#MedievalTwitter #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #LitPOC This is a PSA for an incident that happened earlier that smacked of some overt misogynoir. A bunch of those tweets have been erased but I am tweeting now to discuss some things related to ideas of BIPOC scholars & "rigor." 1/
#MedievalTwitter #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #LitPOC There are certain premodern study "skills" or "areas" that white premodern studies loves to wave around as the only way to go & use it as some sort of cudgel for gatekeeping that smacks of a kind of "white premodern only" 2/
#MedievalTwitter #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #LitPOC so people are in "shock" when premodern BIPOC scholars actually have these skills and in spades. One of them is often book history, material book culture, paleography etc. But the other one discussed is "philology". 3/

@jnlamstudies Forum, “#Shakespeare and #Black America” before the 2020 print publication if you have access to the
@CambridgeCore platform. Just in time for our #RaceB4Race discussions on appropriation! Buckle up--Tweetstorm a' comin' #LitPOC #MedievalTwitter
2/ These essays are short and, not just accessible, but actually enjoyable (IMHO). I’m always tweeting stuff for you to check out, but this time you don’t have to listen to just me. (Although y'all most def should listen to me) + #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #LitPOC
3/ Look at this referee comment. Now you KNOW you need to read these if you are interested in #appropriation #pedagogy #theater #Activism #archives #BlackHistory! Thanks generous and insightful reviewer!! #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #LitPOC #ShaxCultApp

OK folks a few more thoughts for #MedievalTwitter on that NYT article as #Kzoo2019 approaches. [THREAD] #LitPOC #NotAMonk
1/ I’m glad that the #NotAMonk convos are pointing out problems with the NYT article's opening quote (Richard Utz, prominent white male medievalist, “speaking for” the field as if it were “apolitical” and as if monks were apolitical — in the past or present).
2/ But such convos are still uneven in naming the harms of such framing: this kind of statement is part of a continued pattern of sidelining marginalized medievalists (esp. BIPOC) and casting such ppl/allies as “inappropriately” political or “imposing” on an innocent field.
