In my on-going effort to find some way to present my thoughts on Ideological Critique, it occurred to me that perhaps I could deliver a series of lectures from my study and post them on YouTube. I would need a good video camera and a lapel mike so that the audio is clear. Above is a photo of one corner of my study, taken from my desk [which in this tiny study is only seven or eight feet away.] The "podium" is a music stand, and the ladder to the right is used to access the top shelves, which hold the complete works of Marx and Engels [English edition -- the German is in the Paris apartment] and lots of extra copies of the books I have published.
If I had the energy, perhaps with each posted lecture I could also write and post on my blog a formal version of the lecture [not a transcription] for the folks who would prefer to read rather than listen.
If any of this proves feasible, I hope to launch the lecture series next January. I will consider the series to have gone viral if half a dozen people watch it. Hey, I have taught courses with that few students!
