Losing It symposium at the University of Chicago, November 4-5, 2011

[click to enlarge]

What are the many ways of losing it?
How can we write ethically about how our parents lose it?
What are the forms we choose to embody or enact losing it?

These are some of the questions I'll be asking and trying to answer during my "performance" from dementia blogging old and new at the Losing It event.

Jennifer Montgomery's video, The Agonal Phase, can be found here. Kathleen Stewart's Ordinary Affects is here. Susan Lepselter's faculty page is here. Carl Bogner's is here. Our convener is Lauren Berlant.

Beforehand, I'll be reading at the FELIX series in Madison on November 2 with Connie Deanovich. And afterwards, in the Red Rover series with Patrick Durgin, Caroline Picard, and Johannes Gorensson. (Please add umlaut to taste.)
