In The Birthmark (1993), Susan Howe observes: "if you are a woman, archives hold perpetual ironies. Because the gaps and silences are where you find yourself." For Howe, historical omissions have been avenues for critical and creative agency. Writing into gaps--into invisible intersections between poetry and scholarship--Howe's work has brought us new forms of thinking and feeling about how we organize knowledge and what we recognize as "information." Howe's interrogation of the politics and aesthetics of knowing feels especially urgent in our current moment of Wikileaks and the Panama Papers, drone surveillance, the NSA, the spread of news via social media, and reality television.

Florence, 7 April 2017

Dissimulation is but a faint kind of policy, or wisdom; for it asketh a strong wit, and a strong heart, to know when to tell truth, and to do it. Therefore it is the weaker sort of politics, that are the great dissemblers! (Francis Bacon, “Of Dissimulation”)
