In Episode 35 of Make/Work, host Scott Pinkmountain speaks with scholar Dru Farro. Farro is currently finishing his PhD at the Center for the Study of Theory and Criticism in London, Ontario. He is also the Chief Deputy Editor of the journal Chiasma: A Site for Thought, and head administrator of the blog Song, and Sin.
Farro talks with Pinkmountain about his role on the fringes of academia, his deeply ingrained American reluctance to seek medical attention, his eventual and abstract creative goals, and lots of Faulkner with some highfalutin references to someone named “Husserl.”
Saying to oneself “I want to know what that means” is a sign that you’re enjoying what you’re reading.
Every creative laborer has a different story to tell about how they negotiate their relationship between their creative work and their paycheck and how they balance their lives to sustain their creative practice. In Make/Work, Scott will speak with emerging and established artists working in a wide range of creative mediums about how they survive, how they make a living, and how they maintain their work over the long term. New episodes will be released the third Thursday of every month.
