  • 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 ...

  • Restating Things, Again
    • Abstract: Difference and repetition: such is, at best, the celebration of an anniversary, of a recurrence. This special issue of Cultural Critique marks a recurrence and aspires to repetition with difference: it collects the papers delivered at the symposium on “The State of Things” that took place at the University of Minnesota in October 2015 to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the foundation of the journal. We celebrated with a symposium, an event that precisely in restating and restaging the inexhaustible encounter between historical materialism and psychoanalysis effectively predicted our appeal here to the friction within and between difference and repetition.Recall that Plato’s remarkable dialogue “The ...

  • Feminism and the Abomination of Violence
    • Abstract: When I was working on Sylvia Plath more than twenty years ago, I discovered that, almost simultaneously, the distinguished critic and biographer Diane Middlebrook was working on Anne Sexton. Upon completion of our books—we shared at least one train ride on our way to readings across England—we were both in a state of not only exhilaration but also shock. Both poets had required us—a requirement each of us experienced as an exclusive, personal, invitation—to immerse ourselves in what it meant to suffer as a woman in the 1950s and early 1960s. But they did so with such vigor and riotousness as to deprive us of, or at least exceed, the most obvious narrative of subordination that you might expect such suffering to ... Read More

  • The Judge as Historian: Knowledge at the Limits of Doubt (A Response to
           Jacqueline Rose’s “Feminism and the Abomination of Violence”)
    • Abstract: On February 11, 1988, at 12:30 in the afternoon, New York state supreme court justice Alvin Schlesinger delivered his verdict in the murder trial of sculptor Carl Andre, who was accused of having thrown his wife, artist Ana Mendieta, out the window of their thirty-fourth-story New York apartment on September 8, 1985. “I have reached a verdict in this case,” he said. “I have concluded that the evidence has not satisfied me beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty” (Katz, 371). In the terms that Jacqueline Rose so beautifully lays out for us, we might say that Schlesinger’s verdict was in fact a public admonition of the case set before him, which failed to accede to his “desire to know.” The ...

  • Corpsing; or, The Matter of Black Life
    • Abstract: The word “corpsing” (verb) signifies a blunder occurring when, in accordance with the performance of a role, an actor is “put out” of his part. A role that is corpsed is one that exposes the limits of performance and, depending on the metaphor, denotes the “death” of theater, as theater. A role that is corpsed, which is something contrary to the usual performance of a part, is one that evidently does away with an actor’s mastery (of illusion) and no more clearly than when the dis-join between persona and part is exposed. Corpsing therefore raises the more general problem of how any kind of performance can proceed or withhold itself from the possibility of blunder when trying to follow certain rules, or at least how ...

  • Masking: (A Response to David Marriott’S “Corpsing; or, The
           Matter of Black Life”)
    • Abstract: For black life to live itself beyond a form of death requires nothing but that it perform itself differently; it requires only what carries the clearest evidence of life’s affirmation.At certain moments, the black man is locked in his body. … The real leap consists of introducing invention into life.I am most grateful to David Marriott for his powerfully evocative and eloquent ruminations on “The Matter of Black Life.”1 My comments cannot do justice to its beautiful and ironic trill, which resonates in deep and complex ways with Jacqueline Rose’s essay on violence against women. Rose connects political structures to psychic ones via Hannah Arendt and Melanie Klein, and begins with a meditation on two major postwar ... Read More

    • Abstract: The challenge of politics in the Anthropocene is a matter of perspective: we can’t look at climate change directly. We look for patterns and estimate probabilities, relying on multiple disparate measurements. We see in parts: the melting ice caps, glaciers, and permafrost; the advancing deserts and diminishing coral reefs; the disappearing coastlines and the migrating species. Evidence becomes a matter of extremes as extremes themselves become evidence of an encroaching catastrophe that has already happened: the highest recorded temperatures, the hockey stick of predicted warming, sea-level rise, and extinction. Once we see it—the “it” of climate change encapsulated into a data point or disastrous image—it’s too ... Read More

  • Sides Views Split: (A Response to Jodi Dean’s “A View from the
           Side”)
    • Abstract: 0. The original response I gave to Jodi Dean’s characteristically incisive and committed presentation followed closely the written text of it Dean had kindly provided me several weeks prior to the symposium. The response I include here remains roughly what I said at the time, though with several alterations, first for clarity and second (with one exception noted below) for continuity in light of changes Dean has made to her text since the symposium—changes that Dean, again, shared in advance of my completing the response that now follows. I say all this by way of introduction, not only to give a sense of the favorable conditions under which I have been able to respond but to underscore Dean’s openness to ... Read More

  • End Notes
    • Abstract: He woke up from the dream, pulse stumbling, stuttering, mouth parched—his body smarting from a forest of blows. In the dream, his old, battered Maruti had screeched to a halt as the police van thundering behind had swerved right in front. He had been dragged out on the road, as ramshackle traffic roared and hissed around him. The moon hung a feeble orb over the rancid night air. They had wrenched open the containers in the trunk. The squeal of a lackey: “It seems to be beef, Sir…” Blows, kicks … “Don’t you know the law, you sister-fucker? But you won’t learn this way … wait till we teach you a lesson…” Spine, knees, groin on fire … raging pain. … “You will eatthe cow-mother, will you, will you, you bastard ... Read More

  • In the Cold Night of the Day: On Film Noir, Hitchcock, and Identity
    • Abstract: This article originates from a certain philosophical interest in one of cinema’s most elemental features: its dark side. Cinema is a medium technologically constructed as a constant interplay between light and darkness, between the opening and closure of camera and projector shutters, between the control of quantities of light waves within dark chambers and the chemical reaction of light-sensitive surfaces to these waves or their electronic recording by sensors, between bright screens and dark theaters. Beyond the technological, cinema is also about narratives, narratives that, at times, tell stories about dark characters, about sinister and evil antagonists that creep out of murky shadows uninvited and unexpected ...

  • The Perils of Comparison in Subaltern Studies and its Critique
    • Abstract: In the three years since the publication of Vivek Chibber’s Post-colonial Theory and the Specter of Capital, a number of responses and reviews have appeared, some from scholars in subaltern studies and postcolonial theory whom Chibber criticizes and others from more sympathetic readers and interlocutors (Brennan; Chatterjee; Spivak 2014). Although this essay is a review of Chibber’s book, the debates that emerged around the text are perhaps more revealing of contemporary problems in Marxism and postcolonial theory, because they speak to certain impasses in both fields of inquiry. From the perspective of Chibber, and I suspect many who support his argument, these debates are between, on the one hand, a postcolonial ... Read More

  • The “Know-Show” Function and the Uses of Evidence
    • Abstract: For media historian Lisa Gitelman, documents are an especially attractive category—or, as she prefers, genre—for engaging the history of technological reproduction, media culture, and the relationship between producers and consumers of “paper knowledge.” Spurred on by the conviction that the significance of documents (unlike, for instance, novels or political speeches) is inseparable from their material form, Paper Knowledge argues that this “genre” of printed material offers Janus-faced access to the specificity of both their technological production and the social world of their consumers and producers. As its title suggests, the text delimits documents as generally paper, or paper-like, reproducible objects ... Read More

  • New Maps for the Diaspora
    • Abstract: In her recent book Physics of Blackness, Michelle Wright argues that blackness is not a what—it’s always a when and a where. While Wright uses this formulation to analyze the present and future of the African Diaspora, readers delving into Escape from New York: The New Negro Renaissance beyond Harlem will recognize that the anthology has been conceived and organized according to the same principle. Though many scholars have noted that the new consciousness developing within people of African descent in the first third of the twentieth century was by no means confined to Harlem, this collection of essays registers the polyvalent, internationalist, and coalition-building character of the New Negro movement more ...
