“Tic(k)”: A Performance of Time and Memory
I am an oral historian, a performer, a teacher, a student, and—sometimes—a mourner. I often bring my grief onstage on me. While the personal narratives that I write and tell as part of larger performances concerned with health, illness, dying, and death serve as public lamentations, they are also theoretically grounded reflections on the ways in which my academic and professional lives intersect with my (supposedly separate) personal life.
