    Abstract:
    An expanded version of a talk presented at the Sub-conference of the Modern Language Association, “The Public and Its Privates,” Cheer-up Charlie’s, Austin, Texas, 7 January 2015, that ruminates both the difficulties of collective work as well as how various scholarly collectives create spaces of radical hospitality within which individual persons might feel more free to experiment, to take risks, and most importantly, to pursue in their work their desires, unencumbered by professional anxieties over whether or not those desires are legitimated in advance by what particular fields and institutions have already deemed as “proper” to themselves.
