Through personal storytelling, the Epilogue reiterates the ways that studying the life of paper uncovers modes of racialized, gendered, and sexualized embodiment that can be understood within or alongside dominant structurings of human being without being simply derivative of them. From this perspective, within the ultimate mystery of social reproduction as the production of difference, each case in this project has therefore represented dynamics of a basic enigma that are detectable in mediations of the letter and which have been theorized from myriad perspectives as a “poetics,” original acts of making or transformation. In summarizing these arguments, the Epilogue brings such insights to bear on contemporary questions of mass incarceration and decarceration.
