an ongoing collection of digital notations in collage and zine formats as part of my SSHRC-funded research creation project.
“I believe in the world and want to be in it. I want to be in it all the way to the end of it because I believe in another world in the world and I want to be in that...the other thing, the other world, the joyful noise of the scattered, scatted eschaton, the undercommon refusal of the academy of misery.”

This aca-zine was adapted from a paper presented at Congress 2023 as part of the ACCUTE Conference’s GSC Panel – Reckoning Displacement through Story(tell)ing.
That paper, in turn, was developed from a presentation done in a graduate course, Unlearning the Archive taken in my first year of doctoral studies, 2021.
