Wryting-L is an email list for theory and writing, focusing on texts and comments presented by the participants. The list is managed out of the Department of History of Art at the University of Toronto. It is open to anyone, in or outside the University. The object is to provide a forum for writing and theory that may not fit within the confines of a particular discipline, in recognition of the recent interest in operating between and across theories and genres in the humanities and beyond.
We’re interested in all sorts of issues – ‘avant-garde’ pieces, psychoanalytical, phenomenological, or deconstructive approaches, etc.
Wryting is cross-platform, cross-gender, cross-reason; it may involve embodiments of reader and writer, abstract language, and the collapse of genre.
Wryting-L stems from the older fiction-of-philosophy list, which presented work between literature and theory, fiction and poetry, philosophy and lyric, and so forth. Any discussion is welcome. Please send queries to:
