Simone White, “on being the other woman”

This video is part two of the duo presentation in which authors  Mirene Arsanios and Simone White draw parallels to their respective texts “E autobiography di un idioma” and “or, on being the other woman”—both of which appeared in the recent e-flux journal #92, part one of a double issue on feminism(s).

See part one with Mirene Arsanios, “Motherless Tongues” here.

Simone White, “on being the other woman”
I'll talk about some of the formal and material problems presented by this ongoing project. Key questions or terms that continue to occupy me: What is the work's register or key? How to reflect upon linguistic density and speed as durational challenges reflecting the theme of labor, especially various forms of uncompensated emotional labor performed by black women?

Simone White's most recent book is Dear Angel of Death (Ugly Duckling, 2018). Her work has appeared in FriezeBOMBChicago Review, and Harper's, and e-flux among other places. She teaches at the University of Pennsylvania and lives in Brooklyn with her son.
