Winter 2021 — Call & Respond

Volume 36 - Issue 2

Guest edited by Kelly Taylor Mitchell, this issue is a follow up to the Summer 2021 Oral Histories issue and illustrates the ways in which artists employ oral histories as catalysts for world building and conveying story through craft. In the issue, oral histories whether real, imagined, or recontextualized, serve as the call to which artists respond. The interdisciplinary response showcased throughout the issue offers orality as a medium, as pliable as pulp. Making room for centering ancestral ties, conjuring seminal influences from Octavia Butler to Zora Neal Hurston, and celebrating handmade paper as a container for more inclusive archives.
