Insolent in that it interrupts the text, and smitten in that it keeps returning to it

Joining Rachel Smith, from 1-3pm, the Roland Barthes reading group will read their found haikus produced using text appropriated from Barthes’s ‘The Desire for Haiku’, a chapter in Barthes’s The Preparation of the Novel, The collection, The Desire for Haiku, has been recently published by MA BIBLIOTHÈQUE. (The current group includes the artists and doctoral students Emma Bolland, Helen Clarke, Louise Finney, Sharon Kivland, Debbie Michaels, Bernadette O’ Toole, Rachel Smith, and is convened by Sharon Kivland).

Following the readings those joining or interrupting are invited to read, and to find their own haikus through further appropriation.
