In 1933, Marguerite Wildenhain and her husband Frans moved from Germany to the Netherlands and opened a pottery. When Germany invaded the Netherlands in 1940, she immigrated to the U.S. and taught at the @CACollegeofArts in Oakland. #CaliforniaModernistWomen #MargueriteWildenhain
Two years later in 1942, she was the first resident at Pond Farm, an art colony and refuge for European artists near Guerneville in the Russian River Valley of Northern California. #CaliforniaModernistWomen #MargueriteWildenhain
Although, the collaborative dissolved during the 1950s, Marguerite Wildenhain continued at Pond Farm, where she made studio ceramics and held annual summer workshops, teaching select students to master wheel-thrown pottery.

So there's a new trend going around on Twitter that's like, "Here are ten websites it feels illegal to know about!" and I thought I'd do my part.

Here are 10+ #Joyce and #modernism resources that are incredibly invaluable to new researchers. (Not nearly as catchy as the meme.)
@PMHastings' Ulysses Guide:

Find free episode guides, essays, photos, the schema, & other resources for reading Ulysses that make being a first-time reader so much easier. Also available as a print book.
@PMHastings The Joyce Project:

Here’s what I learned about architecture school and practice in my latest podcast with Zach (@cantradionalist): (0/6)
1. @wrathofgnon has likely turned more people in favour of traditional architecture with twitter than anything else today.

Except for, perhaps, the ugly buildings themselves.

2. The culture wars have reached architecture schools too. “Critical” architecture, just like Critical _________ Studies, seeks to subvert and revolutionize, not improve and support. (see @ConceptualJames for more)

Today is not just the #sufism vs #modernism concert with @FathySalama and Sheikh Mahmoud Tohamy, But also a big teaching day. Salama visited Prof Jonathan Shannon’s Arab Music Cultures Class while @znzmusicacademy……
He started his career playing metal covers, like Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, admits @FathySalama, and actually played at a Khalidiya hotel in Abu Dhabi for about 8 months in 1978.
Eventually he ended up going to NY where studied jazz as part of Barry Harris workshops. And fittingly, he connected with @SunRaUniverse Arkestra and even opened for them in Egypt.

[Thread] @DawnofMercy, in response to your recent and lengthy diatribe -- principally against @cardinalrlburke, @Patrick_Coffin, and @TaylorRMarshall, but also naming @EWTN, @NCRegister, @EdwardPentin, @SophiaInsPress and others -- I offer a few observations.
@DawnofMercy @cardinalrlburke @Patrick_Coffin @TaylorRMarshall @EWTN @NCRegister @EdwardPentin @SophiaInsPress 1a) With all due respect, you're making a mountain out of a molehill re: @cardinalrlburke's replies to @Patrick_Coffin's questions. Nowhere did +Burke state that we (the faithful) should hold in doubt the validity of @Pontifex's election. Furthermore, the peaceful and ...
@DawnofMercy @cardinalrlburke @Patrick_Coffin @TaylorRMarshall @EWTN @NCRegister @EdwardPentin @SophiaInsPress @Pontifex 1b) universal acceptance of @Pontifex as the Supreme Pontiff following his election constitutes a dogmatic fact (…), which makes this entire conversation moot anyway. See the following link for further details:…

"#Modernism can be characterized as the forceful imposition of rational administrative procedures into all facets of everyday life. Its subjects — you and I as individuated identities — crave both protection and authority.
You and I search for some measure of refuge in a totalized, secularized myth, a grand meta-narrative that accounts for everything, and this tendency towards #totalitarianism is worldwide.
The concern of the United States over its loss of market share in the service industries, and its concern over the quality of work by its subjects, are only symptoms of a much more pervasive and deeply rooted historical condition.
