I’m grateful: Part 1 of my essay series “Rhinestone Cowboys”—where I muse about Western films and dismantle the genre in order to understand this critical period in American history and the important voices that have been re-written out of this time period—was nominated for a 2018 Best of the Net by Coil Mag.
…we don’t understand the many broken treaties, the taking of land, the attempt and failure of reaping the West’s resources, the failed city-states, the disastrous laws and monstrously heinous xenophobic thoughts and actions, the many dead paving the way for the Modern West, oh goodness, so many dead.
I”m thrilled to be a part of this stellar cohort. A huge thanks to Leah Angstman of Coil for the recognition.
