Course Description

Topic - Dispatch From the Ruins

In this class let’s for now say we will have a handful of texts about The University, schooling, etc., possibly including work by Leanne Simpson, Arundhati Roy, Fred Moten and Stefano Harney, La Paperson, Grace Lee Boggs, Juliana Spahr, Patrick Rosal, and others—of course, others we all think we ought to read together; no one person (is that still a thing?) will determine the reading list or anything like that—as a way to think together (ooh! Outcome!) about what these days I am thinking of as the ruins (i.e. this), but also to think about, and thereby maybe manifest these, oh can’t we please, our elsewheres. Oh oh; can’t we please.
