Disquieting: Essays on Silence

Some brief overview of book

How do our bodies speak for us when words don't suffice? How can we make ourselves understood when what we have to say is inarticulable? In Disquieting, Cynthia Cruz tarries with others who have provided examples of how to “turn away,” or reject the ideologies of contemporary Neoliberal culture.

These essays inhabit connections between silence, refusal, anorexia, mental illness, and Neoliberalism. Cruz also explores the experience of being working-class and poor in contemporary culture, and how those who are silenced often turn to forms of disquietude that value open-endedness, complexity, and difficulty. Disquieting: Essays on Silence draws on philosophy, theory, art, film, and literature to offer alternative ways of being in this world and possibilities for building a new one.
