In 2016 she was awarded a MacArthur “genius” Fellowship. She teaches at the University of Southern California and lives in Los Angeles. \nOn Freedom: Four Songs of Care and Constraint is a bold\, boundary-pushing\, provocative work that explores the notion of freedom through four lenses: art\, sex\, drugs\, and the climate. Drawing on a vast range of critical thinking and writing on the subject\, Nelson sidesteps conventional debates over political freedom and instead explores how we might consider\, experience\, or talk about the concept of “freedom” apart from toxic or tired iterations of the term. Thinking is the ethic that drives the book—what Nelson seeks\, ultimately\, is for readers to come to their own conclusions about issues that are vital to the very way we move through the world. \n URL: ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
