This is the (mostly unchanged) text of a talk I delivered at UT Austin, last Tuesday.
this is great–i’ve been reading your posts on this project at TNI, and I also commented there (and repeated the comment on my own blog), but the comment on TNI remains interminably awaiting moderation. mostly it was about silence, i guess. i like how in this version of the talk you describe silence (i think) as a form of un-witnessing. still complex, it seems like it can both be the work that you describe at the end as a form of “moving on” (productively, it seems) performed in the social life of poetry and also the condition of forced consent, that it’s on the victims to do the work of moving on. Or is one of these, or something else, more inflected for you?
