In a conversation with writer and translator Lauren Elkin, art critic Clara Schulmann discussed the rich voices that inspired her and her picturesque essay, Zizanies.

In the context of an academic and artistic research, she was driven to explore the polyphony of female voices of novelists, theorists, friends, strangers: Donna Haraway, Vinciane Despret, Nathalie Quintane, Valeria Luiselli, Chris Kraus, Denise Riley, Mary Anne Doane, Susan Howe and many more.
