Join UEL’s Centre of Creative and Cultural Practice in this first coming together of Irregular Commas – a new, regular reading group hosted in the Nunnery Café, led by a different artist and theorist each time, who will select a text for discussion.
Each text will be made available to the public in advance, either digitally or for collection from the Nunnery Café.
Taking cues from this year’s Visions in the Nunnery and Angela YT Chan’s workshop on ‘imagining new climate narratives through speculative fiction’ following directly afterwards, the first iteration will be exploring issues around sustainability and the environment.
We will be discussing Bolt from the Blue by Jeremy Cooper (Fitzcarraldo Editions, 2021), which charts the waxing and waning of the relationship between a mother and daughter over the course of 30 years.
The discussion will be facilitated by London-based, interdisciplinary artist Alice Wilson and professor of Film Studies at UEL and co-director of the Centre for Creative and Cultural Practice, Valentina Vitali.
The book is available for purchase from Fitzcarraldo Editions, but we will also be providing printed extracts from the book and a link to a PDF closer to the time.
