The chapter presents a disruptive practice of creative and auto/biographical writing inspired by Milanese feminist’s method developed in the Seventies. The authors, three researchers and adult educators, use this method called “mineralogy of thought” as a way to challenge normative structures of the academy and traditional education. They invited to research with them two artists, a dancer and a pianist, with the aim of bringing academic knowledge closer to lived lives through aesthetic practices. The result is the composition of a creative play script, written form embodied narratives, that they presented as a performance during an international conference. It emerges from the text, the obscure matter of experience, that politics and the academy have always considered ‘other’ and not adequate modes of knowing and thinking about the world: body, feeling, dreams, and sensuality.

Abstract

The chapter presents a disruptive practice of creative and auto/biographical writing inspired by Milanese feminist’s method developed in the Seventies. The authors, three researchers and adult educators, use this method called “mineralogy of thought” as a way to challenge normative structures of the academy and traditional education. They invited to research with them two artists, a dancer and a pianist, with the aim of bringing academic knowledge closer to lived lives through aesthetic practices. The result is the composition of a creative play script, written form embodied narratives, that they presented as a performance during an international conference. It emerges from the text, the obscure matter of experience, that politics and the academy have always considered ‘other’ and not adequate modes of knowing and thinking about the world: body, feeling, dreams, and sensuality.
