Footnotes is a place for trans-temporal exchange. It recalls various practices that have historically activated the place of the margin be it as a form of resistance found in feminist practices of critical pedagogy, the tradition of black radical thought, as an artistic gesture in the 19th century, and as a form of intervention and conversation between different readers as seen in medieval scriptures.
