MAP Reading Group - Sick Sick Sick: The Books Of Ornery Women

A reading project examining a radical or ‘bludgeoned’ subjectivity of female writers. Initiated by Emma Balkind and Laura Edbrook in association with MAP.

Our readings will contrast the work of new female writers emerging from the online Alt-Lit scene with the late nineties Semiotext(e) Native Agents publications under the editorial directorship of Chris Kraus, in addition to recuperating earlier women’s literature such as The Yellow Wallpaper, 1892, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. We seek to explore the tensions between language, sociology, subjectivity and power-relations, their impact upon gender and the ways in which they take form in the text.
