2015 / 201504 / Écriture Collective - Reading Fiction and Its Theoretical Monster Prodigies
Jorge Luis Borges, A New Refutation of Time
Corner College Collective
 


Edgar Allan Poe, The Man of the Crowd, Jorge Luis Borges, Selected Non-Fictions, Elias Canetti, Crowds and Power, Walter Benjamin, The Flâneur


In this fourth session we will start investigating lines that can take us from Edgar Allan Poe's The Man of the Crowd to other texts, and back. We will return to it from different angles, exploring its rhizome of interaction with theory and fiction alike, in the genealogy from Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz, Gabriel Tarde and Walter Benjamin to Elias Canetti and Bruno Latour, or Gilbert Simondon, Donna Haraway or Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt. Other texts are welcome that can contribute to the diagram, from Science Fiction to microbiological and cosmological scientific texts, philosophy, and contemporary theoretical and fictional writing with new perspectives on the social, which connect the subjects of crowds, swarms, packs, colonies of bacteria, and celestial clusters!

We will start on this endeavor by reading Jorge Luis Borges' A New Refutation of Time, which is a text that in this context can be seen as a bridge between Poe's piece and Benjamin's Flâneur, about strolling the urban space in the middle of the night, in search of lost or wasted time.

We expect not only to read, but also to write, draw, intervene, or display.
