At the Risk of Sounding is Lola Tostevin’s second book of essays. The first, Subject to Criticism was published by Mercury Press in 1995. She has also published eight poetry collections, three novels and French/English translations. Several of her books have been translated into French and Italian. She has given readings in many countries including Canada, France (twice at the Centre Pompidou), Germany, Austria, Poland, Holland, the United States...
In 1984 and 1988, through the International Summer for Semiotic and Structural Studies, Tostevin audited courses by Teresa DeLauretis, Jacques Derrida, Umberto Eco, Luce Irigaray, Frederic Jameson, Paul Ricoeur, Kaja Silverman. She has taught Creative Writing at York University, Toronto, and served as Writer-in-Residence at the University of Western Ontario.
Tostevin lived in France for a few years and returns as often as she can. In the last few years she has followed a movement in Europe known as Speculative Realism which emphasizes the importance for academics to work more closely with creative artists and not merely write on their work in isolated terms. Speculative Realism is distancing itself from the Kantian model that too often establishes an impassable correlation between the worlds of artistic creativity and academia. It emphasizes the importance of building platforms between different fields.
Tostevin is presently writing a biography on the artist, literary commentator, photographer, film maker and gardener, Kim Ondaatje.November 30, 2015 Comments Off
