The Agency of Things
This week: Conversation #2 let’s imaging being human thing interacting with other things rather than a Human Being looking down on things.

Resisting Societal Norms
Resisting Societal Norms As part of Put Up Your Dukes! Gabrielle and I made a series of three books extrapolating upon and extending the thinking behind the project.
