In this essay, artist Nikita Gale presents a reading of Octavia Butler’s short story Speech Sounds through the work of Edouard Glissant, Kate Lacey, Homi Bhabha, and Elaine Scarry. Gale considers the trauma of silence and the loss of language as events that might serve as starting points for emergent forms of social relations.
