31 E Columbia Ave, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19125
Join Ulises for a group discussion facilitated by Connie Yu on the essays “Commitment as a Non-Performative" by Sara Ahmed, Andrea Long Chu's rumination in the work «Study in Blue: affect, trauma, event» from Women & Performance, 2017, and excerpts from the book “The University and the Undercommons" by Fred Moten and Stephano Harney.

Connie will explore the aporia of learning and teaching in and around institution toward what Sara Ahmed calls a “process of estrangement,” when what is strange about a given, taken, is relieved. Is it a real inertia in publicizing feeling (Chu) or professionalizing labor (Moten & Harney)?

Connie Yu is a writer living in Philadelphia, moving toward performance and attending to queer domestic labor, representations of the AsAm diaspora, alternate and constricted transmissions of information, the body and what it wears, and how to work from here. They are the Brodsky Gallery Coordinator at the Kelly Writers House, and a teaching artist at Center for Creative Works.

Ulises is a bookshop and curatorial platform dedicated to artists' books and independent art publications. Performing the model of a quarterly periodical, each curatorial season of Ulises invites contributors to present publications, workshops, lectures, artworks, or collaborations in response to a theme.
