This recorded experimental reading practice (above) forms part of a journal article by Katrina Brown and Emma Cocker, 'Dorsal Practices — Towards a Back-Oriented Being-in-the-World’, in Tara Page (ed.) With–In Bodies: Research Assemblages of the Sensory and the Embodied, Special Issue of Humanities 2024, 13, 63. https://doi.org/10.3390/h13020063

The article contains excerpts of transcript material (in italics) drawn directly from this reading practice (conceived as a performative practice of ‘dorsal voicing’). The article itself can be encountered here.

An example of the process of practices within Dorsal Practices (which also forms part of the article) can be found here.
