I was blocking out many times, for longer periods. In my deepest despair I asked a remote friend of mine who seems to be publishing incessantly on so many platforms, you could just call in the middle of the night, ask him about anything and words would come thick and fast anytime. Just sit down and write: something, anything--he told me. And that's what I did, and instead of brilliant papers, first poems came, then thicker texts, other times sketches, or just rhymes, and characters would pop up right in front of my eyes that would stare at the screen trying to re-focus on a piece of research. Now I know that my integrity is based on my freedom, the freedom for allowing those texts to mold themselves into genres--that I didn't foresee coming before.
My best papers were ramblings jotted down and developed later on. They had to be brought into maturity. Deadlines are blocking me. Pushing is blocking me. Being alone on the road brings me inside, and I need to engage in a conversation.
Many times had I been asked about my capacity to connect the supposedly two worlds--that of science and art. To my view there is one world, and my interpretation of it is that overarches the different genres. Never did I write down a word that was not genuine. I do not engage with anything for the sake of performing a role. faludi julianna
The division of labour in society and how this division of labour is being shifted onto and into the families: is a process that has seen a further twist recently: under the lockdowns. The role of the state needs to be redefined, as well as we need to understand the family-structure from a structural view in the context of digital capitalism. This is what we explored with Michelle Crosby in our article in TripleC.
Happy 200th birthday Engels!
