Abstract: This paper appropriates a newfound understanding of Marxism, Queer theory and Feminist theory in what is being deemed Marxist-Queer-Gendered in an attempt to argue that capitalism is the over-arching power ideology that has created hetero-normativity and patriarchy as the means to controlling bodies, meanings and gender. Queer theory offers a productive way of rethinking, challenging and troubling the production of subjects and subject positions, because it does not operate by totalities, as I argue Marxism does. Rather, Queer theory seeks to continuously open the limits of possibility. This paper recognizes that even within the proletariat class there can be many ways within which to exist: the world of possibility. Similarly, even the transgender terms of m-to-f and f-to-m themselves are totalizing, asserting that an individual must be one, to move into being the other. This paper seeks to remove all of these totalizing notions to realize a future that encapsulates one class, the working class, within which exists an infinite amount of possibilities and combinations in which there is no stagnant ideal of sex, sexuality or gender. The final vision is thus a Marxist political economic paradigm, within which exists the queer essence of infinite possibilities.

Abstract: In this talk I will give the topological definition of continuous functions and talk about the ring structure of the collection of all the real-valued continuous functions, C(X). Furthermore, I will generalize the concept to the collection of all integer-valued continuous functions, C(X,Z), and compare these two rings. I will provide several examples and results concerning the two rings C(X) and C(X,Z).

"An alternative evaluation of $displaystylelim_{xtoinfty}sum_{n=1}^inftyfrac{(-1)^{n+1}}{n!},(ln x)^n$ by an alternative technique to integration by parts." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Mathematical Association of America, The Fairmont Hotel, San Jose, CA, Aug 03, 2007 <Not Available>. 2020-02-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p206196_index.html>

Abstract: One of the most troublesome topics in calculus is the technique of integration by parts. The usual approach to this technique is $\int u\,dv=uv-\int v\,du$. This method is a general one applicable to a wide variety of integrals. Selecting the right function for u is the most difficult task for many students of calculus. In this article, we explain a method that, once mastered, may facilitate the ubderstanding of how the techniqu works.

"X-Men Evolution: Mutational Identity Theory and the Shifting Subjectivities of the X-Men" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 95th Annual Convention, Chicago Hilton & Towers, Chicago, IL, Nov 11, 2009 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2020-02-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p365719_index.html>

Abstract: Mutational identity theory is utilized to analyze the X-Men trilogy highlighting the role of citizenship and mobility in constructing recognizable subjects and tracing the racialized and gendered trajectories available as discursive resources for identity negotiation. Potentialities and foreclosures for subjectivities are discussed and the resulting insights detail the strategies employed to perpetuate and resist dominant discourses of identity, offering a nuanced illumination of the processes used to continually re-imagine whiteness, patriarchy, and heteronormativity.

Abstract: In the arena of Black Power personalities, no individual is more iconographic and influential than Malcolm X. While his assassination in 1965 prevented his active involvement in the BPM, he nevertheless became the primary mentor and reference point for Black Power activists and advocates.Despite the publication of his best-selling autobiography, records of his legendary speeches and writings, and books exploring his ideology and objectives however, room still remains for scholars to explore his unique ideological influence on Black Power advocates and organizations.

This void is apparent in the lack of scholarship connecting Malcolmian ideology to the later struggle for and creation of Black Studies Departments on American college campuses in the 1960s. Black Power scholar Peniel Joseph correctly maintains for example, that Black Studies is one of the “most enduring and outstanding legacies of the Black Power Movement.” Yet his otherwise thorough essay "Black Studies, Student Activism, and the Black Power Movement," fails to make a direct connection between Malcolm and Black Studies.

This paper seeks to fill this void in the Black Power narrative by identifying and analyzing the enormous role that Malcolm X played in advancing the need for a libratory Black pedagogy that would challenge the hegemonic forces of white supremacy and equip Black people to advance their liberation struggle and solve community problems. This research explores family and NOI influences on Malcolm X, elaborates on the Black libratory pedagogy advanced by Elijah Muhammad, and its subsequent influence on Malcolm. Malcolm's call for a Black liberation consciousness was inextricably tied to his belief that this would occur through the reclamation and study of Black history, life, and culture. Both Malcolm's objective and his proposed manner of realizing it, directly impacted the students, intellectuals and artists that later led the struggle for Black Studies throughout the United States. This connection between Malcolm X and the Black Studies Movement is important to make. First, it demonstrates the existence of Black Power concepts prior to the formal beginning of the Movement, which makes us reconsider the ways we periodize Black Power. Also, it expands our understanding of Malcolm X significance as not just an influence on armed self-defense and political praxis, but upon Black intellectual theory and institution-building.
