This week I’m talking about slowing down within capitalism’s poisonous culture of speed, and how we can make our own slowness sustainable for ourselves and our communities. It’s complicated! It’s probably worth figuring out! Here are some links!
- First, I cite a bunch of articles about the slow movement in its various permutations, so let’s tackle those. This interview with the authors of The Slow Professor sets out the basic premises of the book, while this follow-up letter is a good example of the critique. Here’s Rob Nixon’s article about slow violence, and here’s the feminist geography collective’s article about slow scholarship and feminist ethics of care.
- I also mention Amazon’s warehouse working conditions, so here’s an article about that.
- Also I mention environmental racism, which you can read about here.
- And finally, a link to Cynara’s tweet about not having a million projects!
