"As Keith mentioned in his kind 'winding down' comments, I have indeed enjoyed this seminar *immensely*. I cannot thank you enough for your many and profound engagements and musings, which it has been my joy to contemplate. As…"
"Many thanks John. Huon, not sure what to make of the putative self-evidence of what you say. It seems ethnographially slapdash. If your question is specifically about Cuba, I'd say, sure, 'human rights' is part of the vocabulary…"

Thank you both for your comments. Keith, as you say, this can run and run, and, as you also say, whether and how it does so has a lot to do with how one feels about negotiating a possibly rather wide chasm between…"
"What an excellent way to start, Keith. And this partly because it gives me an opportunity to clarify this notion of 'emancipation' which, in a self-critical mood, I'll admit is perhaps rather overloaded rhetorically in the paper, and…"
