Someone Stole my Kenny Goldsmith poster
Kenny's reading at Concordia was certainly a highlight of the year. The questions asked, the assumptions overturned, or unearthed, or upended, each less stable than the one before. And yet, one quakes with concern. One says, how can we fix this conceptual writing? How can we assess it? What evaluative models can we corset? Isn't there a particular scientific, algebraic, formulaic scaffolding we can erect to assess?
What makes for good, stealable, conceptual writing? This fall I'll be conducting two classes in conceptual writing, one graduate, one undergraduate. I'm hoping we find some answers. Or, I'm hoping we have some intriguing questions.
