In November, Alexandra Crosby was lead composter in a repair session of the Composting Feminisms reading group. Together, they read these texts, and made connections between design studies, feminism and the environmental humanities.
- Mierle Laderman Ukeles, ‘Manifesto for Maintenance Art‘, 1969
- Shannon Mattern, ‘Maintenance and Care’, 2018 https://placesjournal.org/article/maintenance-and-care/
- Ali Crosby and Jesse Adams Stein, “Repair”, Environmental Humanities (Forthcoming December 2019).
The relationships between textile repair, discard studies and fashion become a key focus of this session because of they ways our values manifest in the clothing, storage, and consumption choices we make every day.
