Bodies that Mutter

Poetic Autoethnography and Digital Textuality

Bodies That Mutter is at once a book and a digital artefact that defines the emergent genre of poetic autoethnography: a fragile, layered narrative that documents various transitions
during a period of eleven years. It consists of poems, multimodal insinuations (links accessible in the virtual version), and a theoretical outro. Writing it has felt like manually typesetting a queer palpitating text. Observe yourself while immersed in the fragments of the artefact and look for your own mutterings as they surface. Thanks for taking this leap with me.
