Reading List: july 2018 onwards ->

This is a list of reading materials including scholarly articles, research reports, journal entries, freelance and institutionally based journal entries, audio works, videos, and lecture series that I have experienced. I began building the list in July, 2018, and have entered any media/content that I consider valuable and relevant to my creative work and professional research, to the best of my memory and ability to log on a consistent basis.

I really have not included artworks or cinematic works in this list. There are a few that dance along those lines, but that list will be added at some later time.
