2/25/2020: “Agitation” by Mel Y. Chen

Today’s #AntiAbleistComposition feature is “Agitation” by Mel Y. Chen published in The South Atlantic Quarterly.

From the article:

“What is virtuosity? Improvisation? What of gesture, agitated gesture, that lies between these two things? How to locate and value disruption, especially when that disruption is a violation of a racial-gendered script of embodiment and movement? Where does mildness go? How to replenish the rich sphere of gestures of life, of thriving, amid the violences that contain it?” (563)
