The performance of a writing body

Abstract


Any discussion on the usage of language cannot escape the body. It is in the power of the body that are made effective our daily literacies, our habits, our ways of naming things, problematizing, listening, creating interactions and meanings, our affections. Talking about language in use is empowering the body in its many daily actions. Likewise, they are in our daily ways of saying/doing, in our ‘languaging’ technologies, the comprehension of what it means to read, write, speak and hear, as well as in the possibilities of reshaping the meaning of those verbs into an understanding of the body as the imperative of language.
