Project Row Houses presents “Somewhere I Read,” a series of listening groups focused on the themes of listening to and hearing Black Geographies. In conjunction with Tia-Simone Gardner’s Round 48 installation, “The Black Power Station,” the listening groups will hear an audio recording of the essay, "Mathematics Black Life," by Black Feminist Geographer Katherine McKittrick.

Attendees will have the opportunity to openly discuss the following question posed by McKittrick: How do we think and write and share as de-colonial scholars and foster a commitment to acknowledging violence and undoing its persistent frame, rather than simply analytically reprising violence?

Listeners will be given an audio text to listen to ahead of the meeting. There will be a facilitated discussion on the text, guided by Tia-Simone Gardner and local Houston artists who also work with archival material and questions of geography.

Those interested can register for the December 12 event here (deadline of December 7) and the February 13 event here (deadline of February 8).
