About the programme
Corpse Narratives of(f) the Limits
“What am I? What is this Time? What is the evidence for a Time that is not mortal as a leaf in autumn, then the answer is, that which asks the question is out of the world’s time…” (Briefing, 64)
“Poor people of the past, poor poor people, so many of them, for long thousands of years, not knowing anything, fumbling and stumbling and longing for something different but not knowing what had happened to them or what they longed for. I can’t stop thinking of them, our ancestors, the poor animal-men, always murdering and destroying because they couldn’t help it” (Shikasta, 447)
“Literature and history, these two great branches of human learning, records of human behaviour, human thought…from them one may learn how to be a citizen and a human being” (Prisons, 71)
The presentation focuses on how corpse narratives transcend the boundaries of time and the grave and exorcise souls in order to re-member memories, restore stories, historicise and sometimes re-right history. Indeed, such visible texts make disappeared bodies appear to the reader; they act like warning voices resurrecting from the grave.
