Mariana Assis, a 2021 New Voices Fellow, co-authored a newly released book “Widening Scripts: Cultivating Feminist Care in Academic Labor”.
This book is addressed to scholars, educators, and students devoted to the struggle against precarity, atomization, and the commodification of knowledge. Through shared reading, discussion, and reflection, Mariana and the other authors share their discovery of a model of care within academia that helped them to sustain their opposition to dominant academic practices that are diminishing, competitive, and exploitative.
Widening Scripts combines collaborative feminist theory, acts of care, and critical dialogue in an effort to open up decelerated, altruistic, and connected ways of doing academic work together.
