In Alexis Pauline Gumbs’ Undrowned: Black Feminist Lessons from Marine Mammals (2020), Gumbs invites us to consider that school (and one would imagine by extension, the social act of study and learning) as not an institution, but a "scale of care."
Likewise, Orange Tangent Study takes its relationships quite seriously in that each of our partnerships with a co-learner are about exploring the radical possibilities of care as the organizing feature of ongoing study. With that in mind, Orange Tangent Study refrains from the language of “clients.” While we will have a monetary transaction, simply, I do not want to work with people for whom there is not a context of existing care or the possibility of future care. So, should we work together? I do not know.
