Julia Cohen’s and Abby Hagler’s “Original Obsessions”: An Interview with Selah Saterstrom

"I can imagine writing as a Eucharistic event. In the mouth. In house. I can imagine a sentence which punches me in the stomach. Noli me tangere: touch me not. Words said by Jesus to Mary Magdalene when she encountered him post-crucifixion in a passage of writing considered to be some of the most difficult to interpret in the whole of the New Testament. The dominant prevailing historic read of Mary Magdalene is that she has a credibility issue." from Rancher by Selah Saterstrom (Burrow Press, 2021)

Kelly Krumrie’s “Figuring”: Any Viewing Demands Imagination

Figuring is a monthly column that puzzles over (to figure) and gives shape to (a figure) writing, art, and environments that integrate or concern mathematics and the sciences. In this 2022 edition, Krumie discusses Mel Bochner's Drawings: A Retrospective at the Art Institute of Chicago (Apr. 23–Aug. 22, 2022) & Renee Gladman’s Plans for Sentences (Wave Books, 2022)
