Magic Words were brought into the software ecology of Etherpad by Michael Murtaugh, a member of the Brussels-based arts organisation Constant. Magic Words are used to enact certain commands; using __PUBLISH__ on this pad indexes it on this page: (every hour, so at 13:00 it will be indexed)

They are little spells that can be used anywhere on the pad to indicate how we want to interact with the text. We would like to think together with you what kind of social incantations magic words can evoke. What kind of relations between text & reader, reader & reader, place & text, place & text & reader could the magic words provoke? If we see magic words like small instructions that can be activated during a collective reading experience, how would that affect our being together?

We will be adding, using and reusing new magic words during the reading time that will follow. 

..   -    * Spellbook for Reading through Magic Words .  -  * .. 

Here are a few examples of what the magic words could look like. Think of them as launching a specific kind of interaction with the text fragment that it sits next to. This will be our collective spellbook that everyone can add, edit or use at will, even while reading the text. 
We will take some time now to add our own magic words to the list below.

* 15h10 - 15h30: experimentation with Eve Kosofsky Sedgewick text & magic words

We're going to read excerpts from the book Paranoid Reading and Reparative Reading; or, You're So Paranoid, You Probably Think This Introduction is About You by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, who worked in the fields of gender studies, queer theory, and critical theory. 
We will paste excerpts of this text intermittently on the pad, we will remove our colours so it's easier to read, and so we can see better our annotations.
As we go through the text, we will use the magic words to annotate our thoughts, feelings, considerations and reactions to what we read.
We will read in whatever pace feels good for us, and follow some kind of collective rhythm on our way.
Score for annotation: Now we will repeat this annotation exercise, but this time we will think about alternative magic words. What could be our 'reparative' and 'paranoid' magic words?
Add them to our spellbook and read the text again.
* 15h50 - 16h10:
Moving away from the magic words, we're going to continue thinking about different modes of reading, of paranoia and repair with excerpts from the book Dear Science and Other Stories by Katherine McKittrick, who is a professor in Gender studies and whose work focuses on black studies, cultural geography, anti-colonial and diaspora studies.

Score for annotation: sonic annotations
Experimenting with another mode of note taking or commentary making: 
We can record your own sounds and share existing sounds that we feel connect with what we are reading.
To share them you can upload them here - or share music links below here as we read;

Sound links

Score for annotation: sonic annotations
We will record your own sounds and share existing sounds that we feel connect with these texts
the texts we have been reading and the ways we have been reading and annotating.
To share them you can upload them here - or share music links below;

* 16h10 - 16h20: Recording moment and return to BBB

* 16h20 - 16h30: Listening moment and return to BBB

This is the end of our first part of the session, you are very welcome to stay for the second part which will start in 30 minutes. 
You are very welcome to take a break too!
We will now jump to BBB to say bye in case you need to go : )

workshop 2

* 17h - 17h15: waiting for people to arrive
* brief introduction again to Reading_Room / Varia / Constant

* 17h15 - 17h20:warming up again

* 17h20 - 17h35:

Close Reading of Nina Power: READING RIOTously

We will intermittently post parts of Nina Power: READING RIOTously, found in The Act of Reading, published by Torque 2
As we read, we may wish to annotate or contextualise the writing in your own experience.
We would like to add our comments around or inside of the text as a way to bring it closer to us.

We will remove the colour of the paragraphs, so we can see our personal colours, and recognise that other voices are on the pad. We welcome discussion.

* 17h30 - 17h45:
Another Score for annotation: parallel weaving of texts:

Close reading of Eleanor Rees: MARk-MAkING IN THE VIRTUAl 
(from the same publication by Torque)

As we read, we can return to the first text, copy and paste snippets or reflections and interweave with the text we will post below. 
We are learning from Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's Loom Book -

* 17h45 - 18h10: 
    Now we will return to ---> --- and listen to a score: 'Codified Mandarins under Clock', a score based performance by Julia Barrios de la Mora. 
    In the end we return to this pad and we will continue with another anotation experiment.

Describe below that same movement or gesture, in a few words or give it a name 'if it feels natural'.
Take this movement, gesture, or the perspective from the object your observed, return to the text and add an annotation;

* 18h10 - 18h15: 

Score for annotation:
Phan's paints are absorbed into the papers that told us a particular perspective of "journeys and missions of father A. de Rhodes" (who was a priest/missionary)
For this score, spend some time with the hand drawn imagery and the moments it connects with, distorts, covers or accompanies the typed, printed, bound latin alphabet.
Thinking about annotations as a commentary, what text/image/sign/symbol/object would you encounter, inscribe yourself into, superimpose yourself on, immerse yourself in to engage in alienation?
What would you annotate in order to bring a different story to a dominant narrative?
How would you annotate in order to challenge a dominant mode of notemaking?

* 18h30 - 18h40:
Observing annotating: take this time to scroll up the pad and skim through the first part of our session. We will play our sounds submitted earlier through BBB, so you can listen through that window on your laptop while your gaze and curiosity guides you through our earlier notes and traces. 

After this oblique reading, return to this section and think through any thoughts and reflection you would like to bring to the final discussion that will follow on a video and call in BBB. We'll return to BBB at 18:40 CET, where we will wrap up with a conversation together.

* 18h30 - 19h: all texts & collective discussion on BBB
