Obermann Center Presents, Pandemic Insights: Naomi Greyser on Writing and Productivity

Apr 13, 2020
Naomi Greyser

The Obermann Center for Advanced Studies asked its community of scholars and artists to reflect on the Covid-19 pandemic through the lens of their research. In this episode, Naomi Greyser, an associate professor of American Students; English; and Gender, Women's & Sexuality Studies and a member of the Obermann Center's Advisory Board, shares some of the findings from her current project, Blocked, and writing while sheltering in place. Greyser's new project examines the paradox of productivity, mapping unjust distributions of block and flow across the raced, classed and gendered terrain of the settler academy. She is also the author of On Sympathetic Grounds: Race, Gender, and Affective Geographies in Nineteenth-Century North America (Oxford University Press, 2017).
