      What Where Series Reading #2

      The What Where reading series was established in 2012 and is now a key aspect to studying Writers in the Community. As such, this event is curated to bring national and local writers and poets in concert with our students.


      Catherine Taylor: Through the striking juxtaposition of puppets and military drones, Catherine Taylor’s You, Me, and the Violence investigates the question of how ordinary American citizens relate to the violence of warfare as it becomes increasingly automated and distanced from first-person experience. Taylor connects puppets and drones by drawing out their similar natures: passive objects manipulated by unseen forces, both the puppet and the drone are also uncanny objects, suggesting a power and hold over the humans who operate them. And both, under Taylor’s expansive analysis, reveal truths about the contemporary subject: “In the object of the puppet, we glimpse the subject of the human. In the object of the drone, we glimpse the subject of society.”
