1. Most directly: fantasyecho's Countering Victorientalism in Steampunk Magazine.
2. deepad's paper, Creative Othering: The Oriental in Ballet, which gets at the fact that Orientalist Othering is not just an innocent lark that some of us are overreacting to.
3. rose_lemberg's recent post on noses, which she actually wrote a couple months ago -- this sums up why yet more bouncy exoticism seems racefailtastic to me.
Would love to hear/discuss thoughts on these posts, but I'm leaving it at "I think these people r smart and right" for now cause I'm supposed to be diss-writing.
