Fragments, Lists & Lacunae

 

Fragments, Lists & Lacunae focuses on three college students who are taking a course about gaps, holes, blanks, and white space – examples include the 18-minute gap in Nixon’s White House tapes, Sappho’s poetry, Swiss cheese, the 12 Steps, and the politics of “disappearance.” In a series of nine lectures, their professor offers multi-media provocations on absence, silence, negation and nothingness. Meanwhile, the students’ class notes and their personal notes to each other – all projected overhead – dramatize the lived meanings of the course’s concepts. Offering this investigation into the dynamics of absence and presence, the professor is played by philosopher and queer theorist Judith Butler.

February 14, Stay Late Conversation, moderator to be announced.
