politics of citation

This is not specifically practice-as-research related but it seems vital to be consider the politics of citation, and how who we cite (and who we don’t cite) influences and shapes the politics of in/visible discourses and practices.

I wanted to re-orientate my writing by what or who I was not citing. I have always been conscious of the politics of citation. I have always been aware of how worlds are built around citational habits; of how a body of work acquires consistency by which bodies are left out from that body.
