Performances of Neurotypicality, Acts of Neurodiversity Gespräch mit Erin Manning

My talk will explore the concept of black life as defined by Fred Moten, Alexander Weheliye, Saidiye Hartman and others with an aim to create a bridge toward the acts of neurodiversity that populate experience. Following from my proposition in The Minor Gesture that neurotypicality might be conceived as a first identity politics - the ground from which knowledge defines itself as knowledge - I will explore the ways in which neurodiversity and black life threaten what it means to know.
