"It is our responsibility, as writers and teachers, to make sure that our texts and our classrooms are not 'safe' spaces from which a reader or student may return unchanged or unthreatened. While a fictional territory...may guarantee million-dollar advances in New York and glowing student evaluations, we have to remember the immortal words of Gerald Vizenor: 'Some upsetting is necessary'. Literary terrorism is preferable to literary tourism." -Louis Owens
