New Podcast: Fiction Explaining Theory
This is Part One of a three-part podcast. In this project, I am using fiction as a way of making sense of and decoding theory. The text of fiction you are about to hear is heavily laced with gender theory references. The gender ambiguity of the characters was informed by Dante's Canto V of the Inferno (Divine Comedy) and its two most important characters: Paolo and Francesca.
I wrote this piece of fiction which I originally entitled 'The Third' when under the strong influence of Dante's Inferno V. This piece is about 10 minutes long. As always, feedback and reactions are welcome.
Also, this new podcast will be available on iTunes circa 5:00 PM today. And, as intimated earlier, a new podcast will be available in iTunes every Friday evening.
Listen to the piece here.
