Ousted by Oedipus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

This story migrates through the cracks of enclosures that are built in reactive resistance to the movement of what is always already there. Turbulence drops the author in divergent times and spaces as she seeks to find ways of being with others, forming emergent collectivities in the wild, after having been ousted by Oedipus. But as the author tries in vain to enclose meaning in the movement, she learns there is value in dispossession.
