This reading and discussion group looks at how investigating silence serves as an entry point to discuss broader topics of intimacy and power. The two texts we will focus on are Aurality: Listening and Knowledge in Nineteenth-Century Colombia by Ana María Ochoa Gautier and Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Social Upheaval by Saidiya Hartman. Through our long table style gathering will discuss what silence means, what are the potential gains and shortcomings of developing a theory of silence, and what role can silence play in creative practice and work formation.
