Reading list, 3 December 2016

My Sunday routine is pretty unshakeable, and E-Tangata's weekly profiles are a significant part of it. This week: te reo advocate and member of Te Mātāwai, Mereana Selby.

Olivia Laing wrote The Lonely City, one of my favourite books this year. Here she is on Robert Rauschenberg's life and work: she's the subject of a new show at Tate Modern - Hal Foster wrote for the catalogue, a piece reproduced on the LRB site.

Writer and anthology editor Jolisa Gracewood wrote up influential and much-loved books from throughout her reading life for the New Zealand Festival website: we have significant reading overlap, but Jolisa can nail down the essential nature of a book where I would flail and hand-flap.

"My only conclusion is that LinkedIn is the social media equivalent of cargo shorts" - Jonathan Kelso on LinkedIn for Tusk's Digital Platforms series.

Mark Wilding for The Guardian on the diversification of British podcasts, and Imriel Morgan, co-founder of one of the discussed podcast networks, on Gal-Dem about developing audiences and advertisers.

Claire Murdoch for Te Papa's Off the wall on the gender politics of Alexis Hunter's photographs.

Ashleigh Young for The Spinoff on the correct spelling of the word eh.
