Dear All,

The last Art Writing Writing Art informal discussion group session of this academic year will be taking place on Monday 24th at the Grad School (7 Woodland Road) in the ground floor seminar room. Lizzie Lloyd will be kicking things off with a short talk about Susan Sontag which will lead into a group discussion of Sontag’s essay ‘The Aesthetics of Silence‘. The text can be found here

(there are some typos in this transcript but it’s perfectly readable) and also in her collection of essays entitled Styles of Radical Will (1969). The essay is divided into 20 sections so if you get a chance to dip in and out of it before the section that would be great. You may like to focus on sections: I, VII–XI, XVII–XX.

We hope you can join us.

All the best,

The AWWA team.
