Interview in Uptown

Uptown writer Jared Story interviewed me about The Politics of Knives:

“Obviously we notice violence when someone punches someone but we don’t notice violence as much when we tell the story of our day,” he says. “When we’re telling the story of our day we shift things into particular order that has particular narrative structure that in some ways is an act of conceptual violence. It really invalidates other manners of telling that story and has particular political biases and so on.”
