You can read all about my thoughts on being multi-racial in this post I wrote around this time … Continue reading On Being an Academically Inclined Latina and Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

“You will run, it will walk”: Grief and the Twelfth Doctor

My favorite incarnation of the Doctor is the twelfth. Peter Capaldi. Bottle-top crunching eyebrows and grumpy Scottish accent. When I first started watching Capaldi's take on the Doctor, I was somewhat indifferent and had to adjust quite rapidly to the sudden mood shift.

In Extremis: Doctor Who’s Missy and the Art of Virtue

Doctor Who series ten spoilers incoming...
