Thanks so much for your support of the Diversity Team! We've been having trouble figuring out what to call ourselves, but if you you call us a team, we'll go with team. Go Team!

Dave is probably rolling in his grave... Infinite Jest was a definitive turn away from the postmodern spirit. One of the manifestations of his brilliance was that despite his postmodern education, he recognized (ahead of the curve) that postmodernism - its rejection of the traditions that built moderism, the fractionation of society - cannot provide solid ground for a healthy person or society. Identity politics is antithetical to his work - the very purpose of which was to delve into the deepest philosophical-theological depths to extract out, or revive, core ideas that we can live by.
