A new phobia (10 aug 14)

William Calvo-Quirós and "Chromophobia"


It's worth checking out what's new on To see the papers, you have to join it, or sign in with Facebook, but it's free. Here is an exciting new article about a new phobia.

It's by William A. Calvo-Quirós, a Visiting Scholar at the National Center for Institutional Diversity and the Department of American Culture in Ann Arbor. That means he gets paid for writing stuff like this:

"The issues of hetero-normativity, homophobia, citizenship, patriarchy, and racism are central to the construction of today’s epistemic discourses around aesthetics, taste, and chromatic substantiation."
