quotes: schaefer on community

Posted by rigorousm on June 2, 2011

… I prefer to write not within some community that I belong to, but within one to which I am being exposed. Community is exposed, not composed. Hence, appropriation and collage — which do not emphasize allusion, or belonging– seem to me to articulate what debates about community always return to: inabilities to communicate.

— Standard Schaefer, “The Beagle Has Landed: Scent vs. Sense” Call for Response: Symposium on Subjectivity and Style, Fence F/W 2000-2001 p117.
