    Hi Dr. Hutnyk?

    I’m a former student from Manchester University Social Anthropology thing (the rasta dissertation guy who lost his mother just before course started – cool identity ha)… ok and took an interest in Gramsci, subaltern studies and others that the mr. Hutnyk tried to turn us on to…

    After starting writing and playing music again in recent years, I have recently decided to start doing a bit of AKA DEMIC reading and writing again.

    I was just doing a bookish searchy thing and wondered how John Hutnyk was doing and what he was up to… so I did a Hutnykish searchy thing and saw a few new books since last I saw you (a chance meeting in Covent Garden if I recall).

    Anyway, I just felt like saying a quick hello and am glad to see you are still doing your thing. Glad to see its working out for you ;) and thanks for helping brighten my time passing through the at times :) rather dull corridors of Manchester SA DPT…

    warm regards,

    James
