Political Fiction: Opacity

Reposting this for Federica!

Hello Everybody!

As discussed in the last meeting, we will read and discuss Eduard Glissant's notion of 'Opacity' and the poetics of relations. I want to discuss the possible relation between opacity, eccentricity and  Deleuze and Guattari's becoming minor. We are creating a constellation...let's see how they work (or don't) together ...

Link to the poetics of relation (few introductory chapters) : http://www.mediafire.com/?xalckg0l98a6uvz

I'll upload 'For Opacity' and Glissant' bio  on aaaarg.org very soon..

Caleb, can you please post something about 'Touching feeling' you were mentioning last time? thanks..

Reading for the next session:

- Octavia Butler, Speech Sounds (short story)

http://boblyman.net/englt392/texts/speech_sounds.pdf

Someone last time mention 'Clarice Lispector'...it would be good to read a short story...

 

please let me know if you have any other suggestion!

I mentioned the possibility of reading a part of Clarice Lispector's 'The Stream of Life' (Agua Viva) when we met last. Unfortunately I can't find a pdf anywhere online (if anyone finds it please post!). I shall get hold of my copy and photocopy it when I go back to London in December, so perhaps we could read it next year. Would be really worth it. I shall add it to the dropbox when I have it.
