"Writing from the Body"
Joshua Whitehead aims to explore how we write with, of, and from our bodies in ways that prioritize cyclical relationships with all animate beings (including non-human). Questions he might ask: Does a wound hold knowledge? How is our body in relationship with the plethora of bodies we are in community with: water, earth, stone, literature? How do we prioritize the realm of the ancestral in the guise of a dream as a writing praxis? In this talk, Whitehead will offer a guide to his writing styles and interests that spans a larger constellation of knowing inherent within the noun: body.
