Jessica ‘Coco’ Hansell’s Reading List
Many titles on this reading list were sourced from the ‘Opportunity for Animals’ second-hand charity store in Miramar, Wellington and were donations from residents in the region. Other titles were randomly selected or gifted to me personally for the project. I feel other works and mediums heavily informed this essay. I would like to give thanks to the complete works of Earth Wind & Fire, performance artist Joanne The Scammer, the 2016 NBA play-off season, my Netflix subscription, the music of DeBarge which I played for 4 weeks after Prince died because I couldn’t handle listening to Prince, the body positive models I see on Instagram who have helped rewire my conditioned brain, the tweets and essays I consume daily like the No-Face Kaonashi monster on Spirited Away, the cooking videos of J.Kenji Lopez-Alt, the cultural harmony of listening to Junglepussy and Princess Nokia relentlessly, everyone I love and meet who don’t hold back and my ancestors who force me to remove my filters and psychically helped with this essay. Trying to fit into this patriarchal colony and out-dated literary racket would be a disservice to them. Also thank you Eleanor for approving, publishing and supporting me with this scholarship. You’re a real one for that.
