It Gets Better Project: video project on YouTube aimed at reassuring gay/bi/trans youth that there’s life after the bullying and trash talk typical among high school kids. Amazing effort (led by Dan Savage) to do public emotion work for gay youth using narrative, image, video, and, to some extent, celebrity. Developed in response to a young boy’s suicide after brutal bullying related to his sexual identity.

Jonathan Harris’s We Feel Fine book (a digital almanac of human emotion, created through blog inventories)

Tyler Clementi’s suicide (private moment becomes public)

On experience and authority:
Joan Scott, The Evidence of Experience
Linda Alcoff, The Problem of Speaking for Others
