Speed made mainly jazz outside of the house, and it was just interesting. This was not something that I had planned. You know, I was mostly American songbook guy, You know? Uh uh Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, George Gershwin. But the patents Aini is such a melodic composer as well as a great guitar player was just something that became a challenge for me.

The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT
"If i say the music of epcot what's the first song that comes to mind. Probably something from future world and as we covered extensively back on show six nine six ten future world has background scores and attraction and so show themes that not only. I think resonate with us but are enjoyed by us beyond just our time in the parks. They are on our playlists and in our ears when we drive run exercise. I'm obviously like reaching and assuming those last two or whether we're just relaxing at home but why which is my favorite word. And i think it's probably because so. Many of these songs were created by disney for disney they are original themes built around the theme using the time-tested recipe of what makes disney music so memorable but for the other half of the world. Showcase much of the music is not only traditional but helps to set the stage and represents the culture of the participating nation. And these aren't songs. I think that we would normally associate with a theme park experience. Either that is like if we're talking about walt disney world But some of my favorite songs. That dizzy songs are found in many of these background. Loops of not just future world. But some of these world showcase pavilions and they always seem to bring a smile to my face as they hear them. Whenever or wherever i am and i said on the intro to the epcot show that that the music is very much a melting pot of so many cultures ideas ideals technology and different flavors. And it's a place that you can hear music that is as diverse as the pavilions and cultures and speaking of diverse. I want to continue our musical journey from future world to world showcase once again with friends who helped kick off this musical odyssey so i'd like to welcome back to the show. Lisa denote glasner from the castle. Run and core memory candles dot com to be back. Jason connect from here with the magic and the after our show on the facebooks. Hello it's good to be back with you guys and the one and only zac brown from the one and only the zac brown show. Everybody excited to be here. So i am excited for this. And i'm curious to one because i want to see if hopefully we can beat or not break record long. Our future world discussion was. But i think and i'm curious because we don't talk about this ahead of time how this may differ. Because i think again so many of those future world songs and themes are ones that we can mention by name. Papillon came up again. I think exactly you know if it was a drinking game and papillon was your word. You're in some serious trouble but so much of world showcases different because one. We can't pronounce many of the names the songs they don't necessarily roll off the tongue and they're not one that we might necessarily know by name but we know in terms of how they make us feel and they are there are some pavilions that have themes or some that. Just have background music that we enjoy very quickly. When and they'll round in the same order. When you think of world showcase when you think of world showcase music what is the first song idea pavilion. Thought that comes into your mind for me. I remember when we sat down to do or when was sitting down to prep for the future world. Show i joked that. I've never felt so prepared and so unprepared at the same time for a topic because it was like it was a topic. That's just sort of ingrained in my soul but at the same time i didn't know quite how i was going to articulate it and This show said hold by juice because like the rest of disney right is supposed to sort of insulate you from the rest of the world and i think the unique thing about showcases that it has the opposite job. It's supposed to transport you into the rest of the world. And so while you know so much of the music throughout disneyworld otherwise as supposed to sort of encapsulate you and bring you into this place. You know. the imaginary kind of didn't do their job right right if they did. If that's the result of in world showcase because the point of showcases to make you feel like you're not in central florida. It's supposed to make you feel like you're traveling around the world. As you're walking around world showcase so i don't know if i have a quick good answer to like what song first comes to mind. it i mean i could say something. Easy like golden dream of course. Which is you know sure. We'll talk about that more But now i think it's it's like background stuff. Like le vian rose and like the stuff that green and like that. The the the music that i just associate. Because i'm here. So much with walking around world showcase but at the same time you know like you said in the intro. It's not necessarily music that you're supposed to associate with a theme park. Don't you have a green sleeve. The greens leave story to which will have to get to. Because i remembered crossing the bridge an international gateway with you and i said isn't the screen sleeves using it yet and then you told me a story from your childhood is i am. I am right. I mean who doesn't have a green sleeve story like there's a green sleeve story and i want to don't jump ahead of ourselves but that really from my childhood i whistle. Inslee leaves all the time and it makes my mother crazy. Maybe i was just hoping it was from your childhood. Okay i i mean to answer the question. What's the first song pavilion jumps to mind. It's gotta be mexico and it's got to be the three cobb heroes right like that's got to be no actually. It's not that i think. The the for me world showcase had an anthem and no it can't be eliminations but it had an anthem. It would be basically the soundtrack to impress his france. Of course which. I am super excited about francine far away i know he s- t and wonderful. We'll get there For me it's kind of an unfair answer. I think about the international gateway. It's kind of this. Great little collaboration of everything that you're going to experience it's kind of the coming attractions. You know like lisa said you've got le vian rose and you've got a little bit of music piping in from like the china pavilion and everything just kind of blends and it just sets the overall tone and of prepares you for the pallet. That is in front of you whether it be musical or food you kind of preps you and gets you in the mindset that is world showcase and for me you know if i was to close my eyes and just say world showcases a couple of songs that jumped right to the top but one of them and this is actually a great way for us to begin. I think is. There is a world showcase background loop and being disney enthusiasts that you are. I'm pretty sure. It exists on your iphone or ipod your spotify playlist because this is one of the ones that i think people do have an play when their home or even in their cars or when they're working or walking or just relaxing and while you might not necessarily know the names of the songs if you were to listen through it and serbia following along this. This item list of the music yelich like. Yes inca dance by cousteau. That's my favorite song. Although you wouldn't walk into sam goody's not that there's a sam goodies but go with me here. You wouldn't walk in goodies and say i need incan dance on forty five guys have that. But i love the world showcase loop that you can hear on both entrances to where you could. We'll talk about some of the changes that came about relatively recently but those are some of the songs that i hear that like the future world entrance mentally

Yep even though they too had a ballroom floor when the ncaa was asked about this they said it was a space issue and they had no room to set up an elaborate weight room for women but prints shows an entire empty ballroom that they obviously have used. Is this story something or nothing. Oh it's absolutely something. The double should be ashamed of itself. The people that set up the facilities should be ashamed. If you look at the men's training facility. i mean it's a full-on weight training facility and for the women's just this one little rack. Its like your home gym for an entire women's basketball team. Yeah i mean. I think this is the sort of equity and good for this player. I forget what team the players. I wasn't sure either but sedona prince's her name mace. I actually think not only. You're right double down on what you said. I think this could cause major fractures in the way. The ncaa is treated by the government. They're pretty a nonprofit. That gets tax. Breaks and everything else. If i was a female senator or female congressman and they don't fix this overnight. I mean overnight. I would take away some of their funding. I would take away. Some of their tax breaks this is. This violates title this. This cannot be legal based on title nine.
Will Le Bron Win the Best Defensive Player of 2021?
"LeBron wants to be he could he could really be the best defender in the NBA some of the plays he made tonight when the chips started to fall against the Lakers things started going against GM and momentum started to swing it felt like LeBron picked up the defense and everybody else as they usually do followed his lead and he made some incredible place and that was I mean amazing, we we say it all the time but thirty years Years old. I have no idea how he's doing this. Yeah, and there's the one there was the one LeBron block that got called a goaltend was not a goaltender. I was horrible. Yes. But yeah, I think you know, it's weird to think of a thirty-six-year-old winning defensive player of the year, but he he's making a really solid case. I think he at the very least right now has to be top three. We're looking at Ben Simmons the you know, perennial have to throw in Rudy. Gobert his name cuz Rudy gobert exists. Yeah, and I feel like LeBrons right in there with those three.
Kansas splits with athletic director Jeff Long two days after parting ways with Les Miles
"Get you updated on what is happening in lawrence kansas. Where less mild was let go the other day and then this afternoon the man who hired him and presumably let him go has also been shown. The door crisslow joining us on that story and others. Chris thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and give us the latest. How did how did how did this happen. So quickly with jeff long. It's great to be with you. Always i I really felt like we heard the news about less miles that this was just it was going to happen with jeff law and just did not senior way. He would survive. I think what happened in a lot of donors a kansas at the end of the day. The president a chance to learn. Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it. And i think jeff athletics look long enough to know he said in a statement. Today was going to be a huge distraction more hung around and and they wanna make a clean break. Bring somebody else in to hire the knicks head football coach. Oh by the way they got issues the basketball program. Well they certainly do. And i saw her. Danny manning announced that he was a contender for the ad job. But as we. I don't know whether tennessee is the template but you do need an athletic director to get in there. Fairly quickly don't you. Yeah you don't the what's your proverbial tail wagging the dog. So yeah you gotta bring somebody else somebody. And it's going to be the ad someone that's that's gonna be the football coaches boss. I tell you name to keep in mind. Travis goff and northwestern we went to kansas undergrad. There how highly respected and sort of in the world. And he's a guy that you're going to hear a lot of push for from donors from influential people there k you to bring in to come in higher this the next head football coach. I think a guy will be certainly equipped to deal with. What's going to come their way on the basketball front as well talking to crisslow chris. Let me just take a step back and go back in time time to lsu and unless miles and after this information dumped the other day and learning much more about what happened down there and what didn't happen. I'm curious as a reporter who has covered so many scandals in so many so many big stories in college football just your your takeaway from from the progression of that program with with joe alita and less miles to to really where it is now and where does it go to try to clean up a rather tattered reputation. Yeah you think back to two thousand eleven ten years ago paul. Lsu's on top of the world now. Granted they lost alabama national championship. But that was a great football team In in a team that was is elite as it gets and now here. We are ten years later and they won the championship last year. But a lot of things off the field. A lot of things going on you know you. You always felt like there at the end of his tenured. Lsu that there was a lot of people. They're out to get him. When i say out to get him that wanted to move on. I just felt like they could do better. But as you know you know the sec. As well as anybody yeses. He thinks they can do better. Except for maybe in tuscaloosa And i think the some of the political forces around lsu sorta helpless. We're on his side to leave. Certainly it and four games the sixteen season they got it in. You heard jimbo. Fisher's name all sorts of aim. Tom herman the end up with a lot of people felt like that was never going to work with all the old winter national championship last year and really a great job assembling people going out and getting staff around in but now here we are off the field with this complete invested in investigation. As some of the way things have been handled with sexual assault domestic incidents going back before was head coach So you're right. There's there's a lot on their at lsu Just like kansas. You've got issues with the basketball team as well So it's It's a mess right now. We'll see where it all

Kansas Coach Les Miles Out Over Behavior With Women While at LSU
"And hello and welcome back. We continue to talk about the situation in kansas Formerly lsu were less. Mild is under employed in case. You missed it earlier. The headlines of course have been screaming since last night that les miles in kansas have mutually parted ways. That's a rather benevolent way of putting less were shown the door. He had a disastrous. Run there but it was what happened. In two thousand thirteen at lsu that ultimately got him fired. Reuss feldman has covered less miles for a very long time in bruce. Thanks so much for the time shafran we want to talk to you about including your pizza just hit about the the nfl mock draft. But let's start with less miles not a surprise. But what do you think Finally pushed kansas over the edge and And did away with less after what has been coming out for days if not weeks from baton rouge untenable this the idea. Kansas jeff long's the ad there obviously sec. Fans will remember from his time at arkansas. It's just been an abysmal run. And the fact that has searched process get less miles there in the first place was kind of a jolt in kind of a head scratcher but now after what had come out from Over the weekend. And friday from the lsu part of this. I don't know how in twenty twenty one kansas could say. Oh yeah we're okay with that just even if you look at the wording on how jeff long explained the move last night it was just like we got to win more games. It was like wait a minute. There were some really Disgraceful actions that are alleged against less miles from his time at lsu. And i don't know how they could look the other way with a straight face and say okay this a guy who the lsu administration had clearly put some you know unique situations around him and stipulations in dealing with people and some of those allegations are so troubling and so disturbing. I really think they had no choice but to move on. And the wording parted ways whatever they just had to make a change and get him out of there. And i'm suspect at some point in the nazi just future an after avenue. Ad as well. Yeah that was. Obviously a lot of people are going now and you know jeff. Long didn't exactly distinguish himself at arkansas. Were shown the door there and surprisingly or maybe not. Surprisingly the program has been on fire under hunter year. Check but i mean how can you. How can you possibly keep jeff long on the job after mean and football's only part of the problem. The basketball program has been under fire for years. Exactly i mean there's issues with the ncaa and the basketball program ac- basketball is a bigger deal there than football. But i think in this. It's so many issues. That are layered together. And i think it's the tone-deaf aspect Jeff lungs long relationship with last miles The allegations in the things in those investigations about less. They are really disturbing. Act act especially as they relate to student workers there. I think it's really troubling and the fact that k. You in jeff. Along the way it was explained. Even if you look back i think over the weekend. Less miles attorney gave us gave a statement that i think makes may kansas look quite honestly even worse that they kind of knew about it and that they were okay with it was almost like well because other people were alarmed by now that it was that it was something that was like shouldn't have happened just because of the perception on it i just think it all of it is made that tenure. Look so sketchy. And i just don't know how your kansas how you don't kind of rip the band aid off at this point and say hey we gotta make a different a different move here. I just think right now you look at it yes the. Ncaa extended the dead period much longer. So they don't really have to rush in through this coaching search process. But who's going to be making the new head football coach higher in this. I mean this is a lot of stuff for the kansas administration to sort out as they move on not just from last miles but i think as they move in a different direction for. Who's in charge of the parliament.

Rudy Gobert's Transformation Started In The D-League
"On sunday rudy. Gobert made his second straight appearance in an nba. All star game. Tom make it a second confederate and for years. Now the big man with the even bigger wingspan. There's been a dominant force within the nba. Tolbert defensive player of the year. There was a time when that was not the case. Time when rudy gobert future was very much in doubt. Today the fx christopher come ronnie takes us back to the time when go gobert was uncertain about where it was headed and explains how he climbed his way to the top. They knew that if he could fill out if he could continue to develop defensively and add various tidbits to his game. Offensively could potentially become a game changer in the league. That's their mind in rudy's mind. He always believed that he would took from wondering athletic. I'm under scotto. It's monday march eighth. And this is the league. It felt like something great emotion and ask past. I s not get this. This is here. you're gonna be the athlete. It stays with you so chris basketball fan today. Think of rudy gobert this absolute force you know a guy who dominates around the rim often makes other teams change their style of play when they face him. But you recently spoke with rudy and wrote about how that has not always been the case so take us back to the days when rudy gobert was not yet rudy. Gobert there. Yes so rudy. Gobert was drafted by the denver nuggets in two thousand thirteen and acquired by the jazz in a draft night. Trade played for show les the french league and his sizeable things into the twenty seventh overall. Pick and he came into the league as a relative unknown. What you'll bring to this team. I mean i i know. You're very long and and a defensive presence. What do you think you can. How can you help this team right away right away. Yeah can we. He had worked his way up the international level coming up in france he had to work himself onto the radar of even french national teams. He wasn't really all that known as a fifteen sixteen year old. How long have you been playing basketball nine years nine. So did you grow up playing soccer before he was on jazz team. That had several high draft picks on it. They had derrick favors. Ns canter to former high draft picks. Big men that played rudy's position. They had a veteran and andreas. Who was a veteran presence on that team as a big man and under that regime rudy kind of found himself as the odd man out but the jess drafted him and took him on as a project and he apparently was not the most stylish guy. What he i community league. yes so obviously. When you're twenty one year old seven foot one kit. That's tall and gangly. It's hard to find clothes that fit you. Great i was going to be on. Is doing right now if you see rudy these various nba awards where he's won the nba defensive player of the year. Two times now. He's showing up and looking very much like a stylistic parisian that he probably always wanted to be back in two thousand thirteen when he was still sort of odd man out on the jazz as you put it. He got sent down to the bakersfield jam of what was then the d. league. i from a life standpoint. What was it. Like for rudy gobert. End up so far off the beaten path and you know in one of the rougher parts of california yes so it's a culture shock for anybody. I think who wants to be a professional basketball player to have to go to a place like bakersfield. California bakersfield has kind of a rough and tumble streak about it. It isn't the most friendliest places. Well tonight we are taking an in depth look into black tar heroin and its presence here in kern county. Rudy's coach will void talked about it would be culture shock for anybody. Let alone a parisian arriving in bakersfield. Which is we're like community area where where are rena and everything was based. That is kind of like mess. Mess capital of the world. So i think he was not going to find a croissant sprint. Snow and anywhere around there. The coaches just told him to stay in his hotel room. And just relax tries to be honest. tells hotel for the most in when he wanted to go work out at the gym. the bakersfield complex. Had you know that all that stuff in their facility but it was very much like. It was almost like a private school in that. He went from work to the hotel room. And that's
Coach Les Miles placed on leave at Kansas after LSU investigation reveals pattern of misconduct
"Of Kansas is placing head football coach Les Miles on administrative leave after reports of misconduct.

In a statement, Kansas Athletic director Jeff Long said the school will look into the matter to figure out what proper actions need to be taken.
LSU Mishandled Women’s Complaints Against Les Miles, Players
"We've had quite an opera quite an afternoon Talking about the situation with with less miles. And i do I think before we get to our next guest. It might not be a bad idea to to go over some of this and we had Kenny jacoby on earlier he is the reporter who broke most of the this with his Fellow colleagues at at usa today and it's a confusing story. We'll try to piece it together with you as simply as possible too long reports over almost one hundred and fifty pages so we ask kenny. How involved where the board of supervisors that's the board of trustees and lsu they signed off on Less less miles is You know private written reprimand for these allegations against the students And and that's what a lot of the students. I've been speaking today to as you know. These people have known about these issues for a long time and nothing has been done about it until now in until it appeared in a national newspaper. What exactly we asked kenny worthy accusations against less miles less miles was accused of sexually harassing At least two if not three or more Student workers who worked in the athletic department He essentially wanted a role in personally interviewing them and selecting who would be picked and any what we learned today is he had a preference toward blonde Women with large breasts Who were you know particularly attractive. He he wanted this. As a way of sort of selling it to potential recruits selling the school As far as the sexual harassment. What we what we learned is that he you know when he hired these Young women he sometimes offered them To help their careers later later. Down the line after they graduated and then kind of turn that into a more personal relationship with them and and then ultimately one of the women said he kissed her alone when he was driving her in his car One of the other students that that was mentioned in this report today said that she had a very traumatic experience when she was alone in a room with him and alleged some sort of unwanted touching and and Decide such a profound impact on her that she basically up and left. The big headline of the day involves joel He is athletic director. Who wanted to fire miles. But ultimately he did not the athletic director who found his conduct so disturbing Back in two thousand thirteen that he said he thought they could fire him over with 'cause but instead they essentially swept the thing under the rug didn't tell the public about it Gave him a private letter of reprimand and made them attend counseling by then kept them around for another three years until he started losing games. So if that doesn't tell you who really you know has the power and the influence at that university It's hard to say what does and finally we ask kenny. How widespread were the problems these problems. Lsu were pervasive and not just limited to members of the football team or or athletic department. There was a neglect For for providing the proper and appropriate resources to be able to handle sexual assault and domestic violence complaints appropriately There is severe understaffing But when they did even you know process complaints often they would result in basically slaps on the wrist. You know students who'd been found responsible for rape Being allowed to stay on campus under probation so that that was earlier there reporter. We just got through talking to Kanye jacoby is is out with a new story with his team and he telegraphed this when we talked to him but the the new story involves students at lsu there they seem to be about the only folks outrage columnists or calling for miles to be fired at kansas. I mean that's not gonna matter so he's only he's only won three games there. I'd calling for the athletic director to be fired. They're both of them probably will go. I don't think they can be able to withstand the heat but according to a kenny latest in usa today the students on the lsu campus are very unhappy so far the school is announced to administrators. Will face suspensions for their failure to report but students are now saying that that is not enough The co founder of the student group tigers against sexual assault saying there's a myriad of people who need to be disciplined. You can't recognize that you've failed. And then keep everything the same and keep the status quo Lsu has launched it lsu launched this investigation. Not because of something they they felt needed to be rectified. They launched it after the reporting by usa today and in the world and forty eight page investigative report revealed today they pretty much acknowledged that

"les" Discussed on The Tel Aviv Review
"Universities Rabbi Arthur Schneier Program for International Affairs and the university's Center for Israel Studies. I'm hosts get out halpern and my guest. Today is professor of French and English at Yeshiva University. She's the author of the forthcoming book. Before Trans Three gender stories from nineteenth century France will be published later this year by Stanford University press doctorate. Ramesh hello and welcome to the Tel Aviv review. Thank you so much for having me so you book does a story of Jenn Duda rescued and Mark de Monte for pronouncing it correctly three Parisian women. There is a socialites who pushed the boundaries of the very strict gender identities. That prevailed at the time so before we delve into their stories. And what they what the stories mean. Can you please briefly? Tell us about the three of them and why you thought it made sense to include them together in the same monograph sure so come to this as a scholar of women writers during this time period which is the late Nineteenth Century early twentieth century in France. And really my decision to include. These three really is the story of how this book came to be. Because I didn't sit down and say okay I wanNA write about transgender identity in the nineteenth century and so what happened was having written. My last book was about women. Writers in Frenchwoman's magazines the first French women's magazines in the nineteen hundreds and this kind of image of femininity that emerge that was a way of reconciled femininity and feminism and in the context of these hyper feminized images. That were there that were sort of combat idea of the woman writer as the blue stocking who was doughty and threatening and horrible and destroying families. That book was about these images photographs of women writers who were presented as hyper feminine. It was called having it. All in the belly puck. And it was about reconciling feminism and family and showing how women writers are not threatening at all so in the context of that. I came across Daniela. Who was the only one in these magazines? She was another one of these celebrity women writers so to speak and she was always the only one wearing pants and not only wearing pants. Seen in the. It's hard for me to actually speak without all my images are about sixty five of them in the in the book. It's also a book and that's about early photography in a sense and early media culture but in these amazing photographs of her in these women's magazines alongside her husband wearing beautifully tailored men suit and so I sort of couldn't figure that out in the context of that book and it was like all right. Let me look into that later. I knew it was sort of one of the many things that blew my mind in the book. That you to get a special permit from the police were men. Yes that law. Fun fact was removed in two thousand thirteen so it was illegal. I mean obviously french-owned wearing pants long before that but it was illegal until literally illegal until two thousand thirteen for French women to wear pants in Paris without a permit so all three of these figures needed a Panspermia and penalties cylinder tic- small a transvestite ism permit actually and they either secured or tried to secure it. It in different ways and that those stories are are in there as well so what I did so I after finishing out that when that second book came out I know I was sort of bereft having really enjoyed writing it and thought I'll never read another book again but this is my path. I'm going to go explore Jane. You're left one and see what that is. All about and everyone talked about. It wasn't there is no nothing secret. About the fact that she wore pants she was married. She was ultra Catholic super-conservative and she dressed like a man she wore hair super short and that was just period and I was like. That's on a period. That's a question mark. What you know. What's going on there and so I actually thought it was writing a book about marriage because she was married in their other examples. Actually all three of my fingers were married and so I was interested in these kind of marriages of the mind in this particular moment. In time I quickly found that there was much more wide written a lot more than her husband. My Cell and was a much more interesting at least to me figure and so I started reading these historical novels that she wrote so a lot of what I do in. My research is look at women's novels from this time period. That were very popular in their time and that no one has read since but because French people keep their books. And if you've been to Paris you. Can you know a lot of these? I have copies because I literally found them at a Buchen East along this and so that's part of a romance of French professor. The perks is we get to do things like that. You're good to go to parents. Poor US right so anyway. I happened upon the magazines. Actually I that way but then I had this collection also Ebay and I have. That's a whole other thing but because of this time period is not that far away and because French people tend to cherish their books and other kinds of items. You can have these physical things and they were in libraries like you find them in university and Major University libraries in the United States. They have Judah Shields Even Monte. Fo's books because they ordered them in eighteen ninety s one thousand nine hundreds in the nineteen twenties. And the reproductions so anyway. I'm sort of pick up these this huge novel about the historical novel about the Crusades. And I'm thinking like I'll have to slog my way through this and see if there's anything worth looking at here and all of a sudden girls are turning into boys and cutting off their hair. I mean I was literally gasping out loud sort of my favorite moments when I'm like. Oh my what is what is happening here. Can this be and of course? This is very much informed by it being at the time. I don't know around two thousand fourteen. Two Thousand Fifteen when trans is in the air. I've read some recent trans memoirs. People are starting to talk about this really just starting and I'm seeing this stuff and it's just making sense to me in a totally different way and I'm I'm stunned. You know and so I think okay. That's clearly this story that I'm telling here and it got me thinking as a scholar of so many other women writers the time if there were a few other women who quote unquote resist categorization and whom I've written about I've written about she before and it was always this like painful process of trying to make sense of her and I suddenly thought of the most famous novel mischievously news which is often studied in American classrooms at least recently because in the past thirty years because it is so gender bend either so much going on there and I thought. Is there something going on the air you know? We've thought about Queer Eye Shield and as she is about she's she's challenging gender norms and all sorts of ways and her novels and I just thought well what about the Trans Lens here and that made me start to think about these two together and so it actually started as those two who are very very different one being ultra conservative and religious and the other one a rebel who embrace that rebel identity to a certain degree and so it was started as a look at these two different people using various narrative structures discourses their day to make sense of their identities at a time when this category had not not yet been articulated. Yeah the interesting thing is that today. It's more and more normal to consider these categories at the time to an extent or largest dent. It was quite transgressive yet. These characters were not at all ostracized and marginalized by society. Won't maybe not at all. But they had public profile. They were apple middle class. Parisian's how do you explain that the fact that were you know the was more normally than you'd expect right and that is another important reframe for this time period? Where we you know? There's the whole question of present as in literary history and other kinds of history. Like how much are we in reading through the present and of course we're always reading the president and part of what I'm trying to do with my work to sort of disrupt the nineteen fifties present through which we've sort of codified how we read these writers and use the updated categories to see them more deeply without saying you know. This is exactly with while being sensitive to the historical and cultural context. These writers existed in society in different ways in an overlapping elements of society. My biggest puzzle with July Wa. This first one who was very much in this upper crust academic circle. Her husband was a member of the academy. Says which is the ultimate most conservative institution in France and so part of the thrill of this research. In order to go into the archives. So his this is also part of why? This research is possible because he was a quote immortal. If you're elected to the Academy Francaise women weren't allowed to be couldn't be elected until the nineteen eighties fun fact. But he was. And if you're elected you become an immortal. And his archives are there and therefore her archives are there and that's why I had access to all this stuff and to become a be allowed into this library. You actually have to get permission from an immortal to do so and so you do that by writing to them. And it's not that hard but I didn't say oh I'm working on transgender. I come look at this stuff and so every time I go in there the most conservative place in French society. I do it with the kind of knowledge of what it is that I have my own little subversion there but yeah you could get away with these things to the extent that looks. She was married and she wasn't challenging. Social structures in fact I think one of the most compelling and poignant parts of Jane was story is the way in which she tried to inscribe her own life into a Catholic and conservative narrative as opposed to saying this culture doesn't seem he doesn't accept me she said.
