“Unlearning: Intoxicated Method” attends more directly to cultures of sanctioned education and builds upon agitation by considering the ways method or pedagogy must respond to the political urgencies laid out in the previous chapters. It articulates notions of “undergrowth” in and around the university, a prime instance being the pedagogies of situated art in Fiona Foley’s Black Opium installation in the Queensland State Library, which stages a “slow agitation” around bodies of opium (enjoining the explorations of previous chapters) in a visual redaction of the Act introduced in Chapter 1. The chapter then turns to a study of “brain fog,” examining the alignments of sanctified pedagogies with purported freedom from intoxication, subjecting this idealization to disability-race critique. “Intoxicated Method” is the chapter’s offering towards the acknowledgment and taking up of intoxicatory presents under the rubric of “cripistemology.”
