“An Index of Natural and Artificial Re(a)ds” (excerpt)

Disability Studies Quarterly 39.4, 2019


This index is a memoir of dyslexia, which distills, palimpsests, or perhaps kills the real and unreadable primary text. What’s re(a)d pools and beams here. This index leaks and stains your hands as you hold it in mind; it stutters, sounds out, backtracks and questions itself as it attempts to organize the chaos of illegibility. The text hopes you will join it in these acts of vocal color.
