Slow Scrape brilliantly enacts a poetics of relation and action to counter the settler colonial violences of erasure, extraction, and dispossession. Drawing on documentary poetics, concrete-based installations, event scores, and other texts, the book cites memory, Cree and Alutiiq languages, and embodiment as modes of relational being and knowing. In the words of Layli Long Soldier, Slow Scrape presents “an expansive and undulating meditation on time, relations, origin, and colonization."
Includes an introduction by Layli Long Soldier as well as a dialogue between Lukin Linklater and editor for the first edition, Michael Nardone.
