Littoral Listening #7: Inconvenience
November 18, 2022 at 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join the FEELed Lab for Littoral listening, a monthly online listening and reading group.
In a time of overlapping catastrophe and disaster, it seems somewhat trite to talk about “inconvenience” as something to seriously contend with. In this LL session, we will nonetheless attempt to do so. Might inconvenience provide an appropriate scale for considering relationships and structural impositions that fall off the radar, in their seeming triviality? Can thinking with inconvenience provide access to valuable modes and levels of action? How is inconvenience otherwise used – as scapegoat, alibi, gaslight, trojan horse – or other tactical operation, in the business of trying to understand and navigate difference?
Together, we will read/listen to work from cultural theorist Lauren Berlant, poet Erin Robinsong, and poets/activists Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner and Aka Niviana.
Pre-registration is not required.
