Paranoid Histories at the OMNI
In his essay “For a Paranoid History, or, Bakersfield: Capital of the Twentieth Century,” historian and artist Kurt Newman writes, “My proposal is this: we should all become a little more ‘paranoid.’ In the process, we should think carefully about whether historiography can really do without the concept of ‘paranoia.'”
Join Newman, along with visiting poets Julia Drescher, Michelle Detorie, and CJ Martin, for a conversation about writing “paranoid histories,” including the composition of new critco-poetic essays about Jack Spicer, Robert Creeley, and feral poetics.
This event will take place at the OMNI (4799 Shattuck) on Saturday, 1/10 from 7-9 pm. See you there!
