  • Editorial Statement
    • Abstract: Cultural Critique provides a forum for creative and provocative scholarship in the theoretical humanities and humanistic social sciences. Transnational in scope and transdisciplinary in orientation, the journal strives to spark and galvanize intellectual debates as well as to attract and foster critical investigations regarding any aspect of culture as it expresses itself in words, images, and sounds, across both time and space. The journal is especially keen to support scholarship that engages the ways in which cultural production, cultural practices, and cultural forms constitute and manifest the nexus between the aesthetic, the psychic, the economic, the political, and the ethical intended in their widest ...

  • Willing to Die: Addiction and Other Ambivalences of Living
    • Abstract: I get world sick every time I take a stepI love you, baby, Can I have some more'When I was a heroin addict, I used drugs both to achieve what Jacques Lacan has characterized as the "jubilation" one experiences when we seem to coincide with our ego-ideal and to produce a positivity out of my increasing sense "of fragmentation, of rupture, of breaking up, of lack of adaptation, of inadequation" (1975, 38). I was drawn to heroin because it promised that sense of plenitude to which we all ostensibly aspire, when all the while it was really increasing the distance between my feeling of imaginary wholeness and what Kaja Silverman has described as "the body in bits and pieces" (45). I was not the narcissistic subject ... Read More

  • Religious Studies' Mishandling of Origin and Change: Time, Tradition, and
           Form of Life in Buddhism
    • Abstract: Most of religious life works quite well without "critique" because most of life does.Every use is first of all use of self: to enter into a relation of use with something, I must be affected by it …; in the using of something, it is the very being of the one using that is first of all at stake.The modern (postcolonial-minded) narrative of religion is a critique of the problem of time, in that it "separates" (krinein) origin (arche) from change. Central to this narrative is the idea that religion or religious life, as something that belongs to history, changes. Change is assumed to be history's "force of movement." It is often difficult for a modern scholar to narrate the story of religion without the paradigmatic ... Read More

  • A Global "We"' Poetic Exhortations in a Time of Precarious Life
    • Abstract: In his analysis of Charles Baudelaire, Walter Benjamin shows that late nineteenth-century European poetry's retreat into a radical individuality is a response to changes in capitalism—in particular, new temporalities of machine work and "shocks" by the crowd (161). This essay brings together two poets, Sean Bonney and Myung Mi Kim, who write under conditions in which that crowd has disappeared. The hortatory mode used by their poems takes its ethical and political force not from the shock of encountering the crowd but from realizing that crowds themselves are in jeopardy. While some contemporary hortatory poems draw on historical norms of lyric poetry, my concern here is not the Anglophone lyric per se; the ballads ... Read More

  • From Targets to Matches: The Digital Anatomy-Politics of Neoliberal
           Sexuality
    • Abstract: A remarkable trait of our neoliberal societies is that the widespread discredit of political institutions is counterpoised by an unprecedented expansion of power. Power hides behind ultramodern techniques while simultaneously letting traits that look archaic resurface. On one side, we have extensive deployments of digital technologies and metadata analysis that enable pervasive control, while on the other, we have the institutionalization of practices—infringements of fundamental democratic rights such as due process, torture, secrecy of correspondence and so forth—that modern democracies had abolished, at least in principle, long ago. When describing the forms of power that developed with the advent of capitalism ... Read More

  • The Pedagogical Power of Things: Toward a Post-Intentional Phenomenology
           of Unlearning
    • Abstract: Jane Bennett's book Vibrant Matter: A Political Ecology of Things has two overlapping and mutually supportive aims. First, she has a philosophical project: to problematize and hopefully overcome a major bias in Western philosophical thinking that separates life and death, activity and passivity, vibrancy and inertness. As counterintuitive as it may seem, Bennett proposes that brute matter exerts its own power that exists below the human world. Focusing on the "vitality" of things means coming to terms with the "capacity of things … not only to impede or block the will and designs of humans but also to act as quasi agents or forces with trajectories, propensities, or tendencies of their own" (viii). This ... Read More

  • Colonialism at Home: Colonial Sensibility of the Suburb in Yasujirō Ozu's
           I Was Born, But … (1932)
    • Abstract: In the early 1930s, a distinctive film genre emerged in Japan. As its name suggests, the "middle-class film" (shōshimin eiga) featured families of white-collar employees in their modern, everyday milieu. Highly successful not only with the middle-class audience but also the general public, it has proved to have a lasting influence on various forms of Japan's visual culture, including the widely popular television melodramas in the postwar period. Mitsuyo Wada-Marciano has argued that the genre was both symptomatic and pedagogical: the new genre reflected the emergence of the Japanese middle class since the 1920s, while the images shown on the screen helped shape middle-class consciousness, and even a normative ...

  • Ubi Caritas: Children and Religious Celibates
    • Abstract: It is perhaps easy to fall prey to the pop-cultural assumption that religious celibacy necessarily indicates a type of peculiarity, or "queerness," that coincides with predatory homosexuality. In April 2011, New Hampshire Republican House Majority Leader D. J. Bettencourt disparaged a critic of his proposed budget—Roman Catholic Bishop John McCormack—by calling him a "pedophile pimp who should have been led away from the State House in handcuffs with a raincoat over his head in disgrace" (Love and Ramer, 1). Bettencourt's riposte came after Bishop McCormack had spoken against the budget to a crowd of protesters, arguing, in line with Catholic teachings on social justice, that the proposal would not do enough for ...

  • The Outlaw-Knight: Law's Violence in The Faerie Queene, The Man Who Shot
           Liberty Valance, and The Dark Knight Rises
    • Abstract: In Christopher Nolan's 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises, the hero begins as an outlaw, and an outlaw masquerades as a hero. Their names, Wayne and Bane, rhyme; they belong to the same secret martial order; both wear masks and love the same woman. As the plot unfolds these figures move between the same spaces, appropriating each other's weapons and motivations. Although the film embeds them in an allegorical discourse in which one represents justice and the other uncontrolled violence, their differences are often surprisingly minor. Legal and political theorists as varied as Walter Benjamin, Robert Cover, and Giorgio Agamben have asserted the inseparability of law and violence. In the modern state, Benjamin claims ... Read More

  • Edward W. Said and Joseph Boone's The Homoerotics of Orientalism
    • Abstract: Since the passing of Edward W. Said in September 2003, a plethora of books engaging his scholarly and political legacy have cropped up in academe. Ranging from the excellent to the moderately competent, the few that attack Said and his work often belong to that not-so-rare type of monographs whose authors exhibit, or sometimes seem to courageously boast of, their theoretical and empirical illiteracy.1 Attacks on Said and his oeuvre, of course, predate his untimely death; but in this posthumous era, it is a different crowd of academics, ones who had closely guarded their secret criticisms of Said when he was alive but felt compelled to avow them publicly following his demise.Criticizing Said's scholarship and ...

  • In The Conjuncture
    • Abstract: Conjuncture: from the Latin conjungere (to bind together, to connect, to join). A combination of circumstances, a convergence of events, an intersection of contingencies and necessities, a complex, overdetermined state of affairs—usually producing a crisis, leading to a breaking point, driving to a historic crossroads …"In The Conjuncture" is a new thematic section of Cultural Critique, consisting of short pieces meant at once as soundings, interventions, and provocations regarding a cultural and political phenomenon of urgent and topical interest. Straddling the seldom-crossed border between critical–theoretical scholarship and op-ed journalism, this section will focus, each time, on a singular historical ... Read More

  • Caliban After Communism: Thoughts on the Future of Cuba
    • Abstract: Like most Americans, I welcomed the Obama initiative to re-establish diplomatic relations and open up new commercial and travel ties with Cuba. I also welcomed the reform process in Cuba itself, though I thought it was moving too slowly. The new initiative by Trump, though it symbolically cancels the Obama accord, does not in fact change things all that much in the short run. The Cuban response to the Obama initiative was sluggish and cautious, and now with the hostility of the new administration will be probably even more sluggish and cautious. Why not' The Cubans know that while there is much to be gained from making a transition out of Communism, there is also much to be lost: consider the cases of Hungary and ... Read More

  • Reflections on Revolution and Socialism in Our Times
    • Abstract: As Fidel Castro lay dying in November 2016, the American electoral season was in the process of playing its most recent morbid joke on the world. On the one hand, Castro's death in Cuba seemed to augur the final demise of state alternatives to capitalist democracy—those alternatives historically named "socialism"—even while, on the other hand, Trump's victory in the United States seemed to ring the final death knell of precisely that very capitalist democracy, whose hovering on life support had already been signaled by the inexorable rise of Tea Party Republicans in the United States and of Far Right movements throughout Europe, the Philippines, and Japan, among others. Between the death, the demise, and the life ... Read More

  • The Ambiguous Debt of Counterrevolution to Revolution: Reply to a Vigilant
           Melancholic
    • Abstract: In the letter of invitation to write for this issue—an unusual one that does not shrink from accentuating its partisan call in the name of a certain "historical immortal" Fidel Castro, whose recent death is also an occasion to recalibrate the economy of his life between its political historicity and revolutionary immortality—a central question is posed: What is lost when the concept of revolution is lost to the thinking of politics' I don't find myself capable of undertaking the Castroist recalibration but I will attempt a compact response to the general question.My reply to this vigilant and melancholic question is that what is also lost when revolution is lost to politics is the thought of counterrevolution. Why ... Read More

  • Fidel and The Tricontinental Imagination
    • Abstract: Recently a Left-wing music group from Delhi, Parcham, uploaded a Hindi version of the song "Guantanamera," the Cuban folk song revolutionized by the poetry of Jose Marti. In part, it was an exercise in nostalgia about what we had left behind, but in equal measure it was still a longing for a future that many of us had come to associate with the Cuban Revolution and the figures of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. If Che was the perennial revolutionary, the figure of Fidel increasingly embodied for us, in our youthful revolutionary days, the "tricontinental" imagination—that is, the coming together of the oppressed peoples of three continents: Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In this imagination the small Caribbean ... Read More

  • Un Homenaje a Fidel (An Homage to Fidel)
    • Abstract: Two years and two days ago a momentous development took place that many of us in this room thought unlikely: Presidents Raul Castro's and Barack Obama's announcement that both of their governments would begin the process to restore diplomatic ties and the normalization of other relations.In case you might have concluded from that announcement and the discussions between both governments since then that the ruling class in the United States had now finally come to its senses and has finally come to accept the existence of the Cuban Revolution, you're probably having second thoughts. The coverage of Fidel Castro's death by the big business media has likely been a rude awakening for you. From the conservative to the ... Read More

  • Crowds and Power
    • Abstract: In the opening decades of the twenty-first century, crowds have disrupted the settings given by capital and the state. Breaking with the suffocating reflexivity of contribution and critique in the mediated networks of communicative capitalism, insistent crowds impress themselves where they don't belong. Their very presence challenges the privatization of ostensibly public places from São Paulo, to Istanbul, to New York. Intense and temporary aggregations in multiple locations now appear as one struggle. We see Montreal connected to Athens connected to Cairo connected to Madrid connected to Oakland. Instead of the incommunicable strikes of a multitude of singularities, crowds and riots in place after place ... Read More

  • Analysis Terminable and Postponed
    • Abstract: "What is psychoanalysis, if what one's colleagues are doing, always, is not it'" (10). One of several questions driving Kate Schechter's sharp critique of psychoanalysis, especially as it's been taught and practiced in Chicago for several decades, Illusions of a Future puts psychoanalysis in the context of a "biopolitics of desire" involving managed care, medication, and the neoliberal expectations often tied to both. The "illusions" in the book's title are chiefly those of the analysts, Schechter concludes, with a strong implication that the future of psychoanalysis in the United States might itself become quixotic and illusory, given a multitude of changes in treatment, including in the "quick-fix ...
