  • Vagabonding in Neveryon

    In this group, we'll read the four books which collect the eleven stories by Samuel R. Delany set in Neveryon. Delany queers fantasy, using it to explore the birth of human culture - the good, the bad, and the very ugly. We'll meet to discuss the stories and do writing exercises. How did Delany use (or invent) a genre which could be called speculative pre-history? How can we make creative and radical use of this genre today?

  • Radical Educator Workshop

    This would be a discussion group open to all educators, but it's particularly for adjunct instructors in higher education in the arts and humanities--many of us, I think, lack formal training in teaching and are hungry to share & give framework to our experiences.

  • Poem Talks

    Not a workshop nor a class nor a reading series quite, Poem Talks would be a series of sessions each led by a different member of the class (or guest-writer). The Talking Poet would present one poem, and talk about it--its form, the process by which it came about, the paper or program upon which it was written, its intent and the accidents that altered it as it came--for as long as they can bring themselves. Nobody ever does this, ever. Then we would ask them questions.

  • Deleuze and Guattari Summer Reading Group

    "If you free it with too violent an action, if you blow apart the strata without taking precautions, then instead of drawing the plane you will be killed, plunged into a black hole, or even dragged toward catastrophe. Staying stratified—organized, signified, subjected— is not the worst that can happen; the worst that can happen is if you throw the strata into demented or suicidal collapse, which brings them back down on us heavier than ever.
