About the Author

Natalie Loveless is Associate Professor of Contemporary Art and Theory at the University of Alberta and editor of New Maternalisms Redux and Knowings and Knots: Methodologies and Ecologies in Research-Creation.


"In this beautifully argued, eminently readable book, stories are the center of attention. Morphing art and knowledge in the neoliberal university situates thinking and pedagogy. Curiosity-driven transdisciplinary practice is both motor and object of analysis. Natalie Loveless asks how stories craft worlds in politically and sensually attuned modes. I treasure the extensive knowledge of modernist performance art and art activism broadly, as well as rich semiotic and psychoanalytic readings of stories and performance. This book is itself a loving act of research-creation." -- Donna J. Haraway, author of * Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene *
"In her evocative book How to Make Art at the End of the World, Natalie Loveless has captured the most urgent and far-reaching question concerning our cultural environment, that is, how to inhabit it in an era of geopolitical uncertainty. This is a daunting task; her ambitious answer, grounded in examples of alternative critical pedagogies, aims to reduce the toxic colonial footprint in arts education by developing a sustainable research-creation model based on differential multiplicities. And that gives us hope." -- Mary Kelly, Judge Widney Professor, USC Roski School of Art and Design
