“To write, and to read, is to be exposed, to expose oneself […] to ‘exscription’.”
– The Birth to Presence
At the limit of discursive meaning, poetic language continually delineates an edge: where writing, no longer merely ‘representing’ or conveying ‘meaning’, touches upon the corporeality of words. In this situation of intimate contact with “language as body”, exscription – literally – takes place.
The goal of our seminar is to exchange current work on the topic and to, for the first time, flesh out a genuinely Nancean poetics. An edited volume on the results of the seminar is planned.
