We are visited by Professor Helge Jordheim from Department of Cultural History and Museology, UiO.
We read articles on art, poetry and affect.
Arnd and Cicilie introduce the texts.
Three readings for today: The introduction to Caitlin deSilvey's book Curated Decay and two additional articles that each in its own way questions themes that are also relevant for de Silvey: interruption, non-intervention, agency of things. One is on plastic and the other on trees, both in Journal of Material Culture.
This time we read the introduction to Gaston Gordillo's book Rubble: The Afterlife of Destruction and an article on memory, landscape and ruins by Rebecca Wheeler.
Hedda Askland will introduce the texts.
We read texts related to affect and the chemical sublime.
Ruth Prince introduces the texts.
We continue exploring affect.
This time we read Laurent Berlant and another text by Kathleen Stewart.
